Default nCloth settings

Hey, I am trying to simulate a slice of tomato draping over an object but whatever settings I use I always get very bad deformation at the bottom where it touches the object or a very rigid board. What I want is to make it drape over the object while still having the origiinal shape.

Have a look into some of the built in presets and go from there.

Dunno if u wanna try this but i downloaded the new DMM plugin. Its a simulation program for maya that simulates obects draping, breaking, ripping,...awesome.

You can get amazing rsults and im sure you can definately achieve what you want. The plugin is $399 but u can try for 30 days for free and there is no watermark
those who succeed are only the failures that never gave up.
