    Hi Trevor,

    Thanks for posting.

    I did get  a message back from Missy who walked me through it. In case anyone else is curious I am posting her steps here.


    How to Add Boning or Support to Your Garment:

    1. Create or extract a shape for for boning pattern piece

    2. clone a material in your file

    3. Edit the cloned material physics by opening the physics dialog box and choosing category misc > hardware

          I noticed my search properties in the physics was greyed out at first. However, if you click Restore from Database at the          bottom it will fix that problem and then let you select the proper categories.

    4. Assign the hardware material to new pattern piece

    5. Arrange piece over body where you would like it to sit and choose action > attach

    6. OR Create internal line to stitch to garment and arrange piece 

    7. Alternatively use force multiplier to replicate a less stiff boning effect

    Thank You!
