Moving the Red Pins

Turn off the simulation for a moment and check how the material lies. Then turn on the simulation again and move the Red Pins situated at the greatest distance from the center (as shown in the image) downwards and toward the center.

Later mark the umbrella and change the physical properties as described below. The most important parameter is Pressure, which controls the tightness of the umbrella. Adjust this function as you wish.

Particles

Start the simulation with a standard Particle Distance of 20.0 and edit the Red Pins until you get a similar effect. I end here with a Particle Distance of 15.

Particle adjustments

To make the final stimulation, change the Particle Distance to 4.0.

Hi, I'm tring to modeling your umbrella, but I can't add more than one pin on the garment. Why? I've tried using the W shortcut, like in the tutorials on the marvelous designer site, and I've looked for the add pin command in the menu, but it just wasn't there. Any idea? Thank you.
