Ya no problem. The cape I modeled isn’t exactly like the real lego one. I didn’t bother modeling the folding of the two holes, I just did it as one. It’s also one of the first things I’ve modeled without a tutorial. I’m not sure if it’s modelled correctly still, but I’m pretty happy with it. I’ll upload a gif or something when I figure out the best settings.

Are all mecabricks models messed up like this? Should I “remove doubles” and alt j for everything regardless?

Technically, they aren't messed up in terms of a program, in terms of using them in a 3D program such as Blender, they are messed up. Using the method I showed you eliminated around 75%-90% of the errors. The rest isn't too hard to fix. The models are really top-notch compared to LDraw models, those ones are a mess. If you are just making a render or something, just add smooth shading to the object. If you removed doubles and triangles for the object, the shading will look a little off. Just keep that part in mind.

Happy blendering!

Thanks Samino!

Any suggestions for cloth settings that would look like an actual lego cape?

If you are going for a look/feel effect, those settings can be found in materials by using node groups.

No I mean the movement not the material

Okay, maybe you can a little extra dampening effect to it? From what I recall offhand, there was a dampening property for cloth simulations.

Would I be able to copy the material of the mecabricks cape onto my new one?

No problem. And yes, it is possible to copy the material.

@Scrubs I bought the hi-res model because I wanted to support this platform, but I'm just not sure how to combine the two to get what Old Scratch was able to come up with. Can anyone provide me with some help?

Well, since I'm making a LEGO movie, this will be really useful!
