Hi everyone.

An excellent script for attaching buttons and buckles to clothilde simulations. Simply define the point on the cloth mesh that you want the button attached to. (

Hi nicodemus3d :)

in the xpresso there are two point node that are need to get the reference axis for rotation.
you need to change the index of point on it.
One index must be the point chooose for the reference of buttom and the second index must be the point adiacent of button.. or the reference axis for rotation can change and the butto n can rotate :)

here the new scene:

Hmm, im now having a bit of a problem. I can link my buckle object to the cloth, but how can i make it so that the straps on either side of the buckle stay attched to the cloth. At the moment its jus one big rigid object on the cloth. I want the straps to deform as if they are part of the cloth but still have them attached to the buckle and move with it. A real tricky one. Have a look at the scene file to see what I mean. I am simply trying to buckle together 2 sections of material and have the buckle move correctly.

Please please help.

Thank you
