Daz Studio Training Advanced 01 - Fabric Thickness in dForce

Have you ever wondered how to create fabric thickness for dForce simulations?

The tutorial Daz Studio Training Advanced 01 - Fabric Thickness in dForce will show you how to create geometry for the edge and how to make it work in dForce. It will also provide some useful tips for fine-tuning and troubleshooting your dForce items.

This training series goes beyond a traditional tutorial. It consists of two parts:

  • The Videos: Focus on the topic. No lengthy introductions, no background music, no fuss. You don't need to watch me setting up a scene because you're perfectly capable of doing that on your own. The videos concentrate on the interesting parts. Each video has an index with markers that allow you to jump between subtopics.
  • The PDF Companion File: Serves as a cheat sheet and reference guide. Looking something up in print is often quicker than re-watching a video. The PDF will help you to refresh your memory, giving short instructions for each topic. The time codes next to each step will help you to find the relevant place in the video if you want to review that portion.

This session is focusing on handling thickness on clothing items. It is NOT a modeling tutorial but suggests different ways and workflows for creating the edge geometry. The main focus is on how to make the thickness work in a dForce simulation in Daz Studio, especially when also SubD is applied.

The tutorial was recorded in Daz Studio 4.21 using Genesis 9, but it will also work for other versions of Daz Studio and for other figures or props.
