How To Make Towels

In this Blender fabric tutorial you will discover:

  • The basics of the cloth simulator
  • How to simulate a realistic hanging towel
  • Use the particle system to create fluffy fur

Ever wonder why so many architectural interiors look cold and uninviting? Everything’s hard. You wouldn’t want to live in a house filled entirely with hard surfaces, so it’s no wonder we’re repulsed when seeing them in renders.

Fabric helps contrasts hard surfaces with flowing soft, comforting material. If you’re finished an interior and there’s no organic surfaces (soft, flowing shapes) then add some.

In this tutorial I’ll show the tips and tweaks to get nice fluffy towels that complement your scene instead of detracting from it.

The techniques in the tutorial can be used for creating pretty much any soft fabric; tablecloths, blankets, silk bedding etc. Go nuts
