Create more Cloth presets?

I’m in the process of trying to understand the cloth properties a little more deeply…

I also would like to create some more cloth presets for the following fabrics:

  • Burlap
  • Cashmere
  • Flannel
  • Polyester
  • Satin
  • Spandex
  • Taffeta
  • Terrycloth
  • Wool

So my question is, what would the properties of these fabrics be?

And how were the properties of the base 5 presets created? Was it empirical testing until it looks somewhat close to the real thing or are they behind some “scientific” properties?


I also became interested in this issue when it became necessary to create the Linen material. As a result, I took the average settings between silk and cotton, but I would also like to know based on what data it is possible to create new materials and what formed the basis of the existing ones

Maybe this addon could interest you to learn from it ?
