I have an issue with this mesh where I made a cloth sim on a character that I want to smooth and tweak a bit but for some reason I cannot sculpt anything on it. I have shape keys, I tried with and without the subsurf modifier. I tried with the multires. I tried without any modifier after the cloth sim. Nothing. It's like it's stuck. I am certainly missing something. I did cloth sims in the past and was able to sculpt afterwards with no problem.

I have the blend file here for who has a bit of time to help me.

Thank you!

  • $\begingroup$ No, but I just tried and weirdly enough it messes up all the cloth when I apply it. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Got it...it was the armature (I binded the cloth to the armature of the character and it gave an armature modifier to it as well and it was messing the mesh up when applying the cloth modifier). Now I can sculpt on it! $\endgroup$

The cloth modifier needs to be applied in order to sculpt the simulated mesh. If there is an armature modifier before it in the stack, it needs to be applied as well!
