Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a point-to-surface nConstraint, part of Learning Maya nCloth 2012.
Here's another way that you can constrain an nCloth object to another mesh in the scene,…and it's called a point to Surface constraint. It's quite easy to use.…What you will need to do is select some vertices on your nCloth object,…and I will do that the same way I did before, by using Edge selection mode. I…will go to Edge selection, and double-click to select that whole border. Then…I want to deselect everything except for the area around his neck; I just want…to constrain that area to his neck.…I will hold down the Control key, and draw a big box around everything else to…deselect all of those,…and double check and make sure that I haven't accidentally forgotten anything, or…missed anything. Just those in the very front.…
maybe not this one; I will deselect that with the Control key.…This should be a vertex selection;…I will hold down the Control key, and right-click on one of these edges and convert…that selection To Vertices,…and now I have got those vertices selected.…Then I need to select the object to which I want this to be constrained. I will…
