I am much new to Blender. I have been following several tutorials online about Cloth Stimulation, and I have followed exactly the same procedure but mine Blender freezes during Cloth Stimulation, and I have to force close Blender and reopen.

I have tried it 20-30 times but no luck. Could it be because of my laptop harware? I use a Sony Vaio i5 processor, 6 GB RAM and NVIDIA GeForce 410M. My laptop may not have best hardware but never had this problem even while using Unity.

I am using Blender 2.90.1

Please check the raw file. Blend File

Thanks in advance.

  • $\begingroup$ How much RAM(s) do you have? And what's your GPU? I think the cloth simulation is too heavy or something. Mine freezes too, but my RAM doesn't flood or something $\endgroup$ Nov 20 '20 at 5:01
  • $\begingroup$ @CikittaTjok thanks, I have 6 GB RAM and NVIDIA GeForce 410M $\endgroup$ Nov 20 '20 at 5:04
  • $\begingroup$ Ahh okay.. there must be something wrong. I can't bake the simulation at all, and it stuck on frame 2. Edit: Okay it's baking on frame 3 now. I can say the simulation is too heavy. Another edit: The result is REALLY weird.. $\endgroup$ Nov 20 '20 at 5:05
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for trying. As I said I have no idea what's going on, it looked so simple on tutorial. I will wait for someone to help. $\endgroup$ Nov 20 '20 at 5:07
  • $\begingroup$ Maybe try re-creating the cloth? It overlaps badly $\endgroup$ Nov 20 '20 at 5:09

The problem is that your model is very small. I think that a severe collision has already occurred at the start frame, making it difficult for the calculation to converge. When I increased the size of the model by 10 times, the simulation became much faster.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks so much for your response and solution. Its works, didn't know size can do that. $\endgroup$ Nov 20 '20 at 10:06
  • $\begingroup$ @Dev Chauhan, If you set the collision parameters to match the size of the polygon, it may work with the original size. $\endgroup$
