I’ve trying to create a similar closed umbrella-cane for 2 days using cloth modifier + some animations in 3ds max (but this modifier drives me crazy with its: warning! the cloth is over-stretched. ERROR")
then Marvelous Designer, but I cannot achieve the perfect twist with “loose” top (if i can say like this)
It’s already become a matter of principle I HAVE TO model it
I’m also thinking about creating one twisted fold and then duplicate it, but cannot draw the whole process in my mind.
