So I'm wondering what the best way to create something like a blanket is...something that will look realistic and not like something thats a rigid body....like a blanket thats just been tossed onto a couch or something of the sort.  Can anyone tell me what the best way to go about modelling something like that would be?...other than taking it into max for a cloth modifier obviously.  Thanks much!

You can create that in a Family generic or in-place with Solid Sweep...

But does that mean I need to create multiple sweeps and piece them together to get the folds and depressions in the blanket as its lying there? cuz a solid sweep is what I've tried previously and it ends up looking like a perfectly folded blanket which is rather artificial.  Thanks!

The best and fast way to do that is using MAX or RHINO, but like you said ".other than taking it into max for a cloth modifier obviously."....

Sorry for some reason I wasn't getting notifications that someone had posted...yeah that looks good...maybe I'll try that...can you use the same method for a blanket thats kind of haphazardly thrown on a couch or something of that sort? because somethin like that is a little more irregular...well..I guess I could always just piece it together to get the effect I'm wanting...Thanks!

id use rhino max or something like that, revit is for the building, cusion and plankets and stuff like that are really for other software. i know you can do it in revit but there is no penifit to be had and its easier to do it in other software

3ds Max only allows students a 30 day free trial...they give us a 13 month license for cheap though...well...not REAL cheap...just...cheaper than the 3500 for the real deal
