Using the current Blender version, 2.8 RC2. This setup was according to another posting I followed to learn how to create curtains and get a pulled back/curtain ring effect.

For the most part it works as designed; however instead of just cinching the curtains, the torus attracts them. Eventually the curtains get all wrapped around the thing. Magnetic forces are not turned on for anything.

I can't find anything else that would cause one object to be pulled in to the other. A little help please.

  • $\begingroup$ Might be wrong about this, but could it be that the cloth is configured to be very stiff causing it to crumple almost like paper? $\endgroup$ – rjg Jul 19 at 22:40
  • $\begingroup$ Example blend from linked answer works as advertised. If you share your file someone may find what you are missing in your file. $\endgroup$ – sambler Jul 24 at 3:09
  • $\begingroup$ What appeared to be the issue is the "Single Sided" option in Collision settings. Somewhere along the way I unchecked that, which made the cloth try and wrap around the ring. It's confusing since it looks magnetic, which can be set elsewhere. $\endgroup$ – Sam Vimes Jul 25 at 20:06

  • $\begingroup$ @RichSedman Will do... I wasn't 100% sure that was the answer, but in lieu of other replies appears to be the case. $\endgroup$ – Sam Vimes Aug 1 at 14:30
