Fold Pattern

Use this function to express pressed lines of formal pants or, in garment details, to set the fold direction of pleats.

The internal line is folded towards the front of the pattern the closer the fold angle is to 0°, and is folded into the back of the pattern the closer the fold angle is to 360°.
