. Spline curves
It lets you place spline points directly into your scene or apply a brush along a curve.

Text


Text: Lets you place text along a spline curve, and create text in voxel form. Its parameters are identical to that of the Curves tool, so you should already be familiar with it after reading that section above. It has a few unique features:
You can select a font for your text, you can of course type in the text you would like to make volumetric, and you can adjust the thickness of this volumetric text.


Vox Layer

Create thin layer around frozen area of the current volume. Paint with freeze to mark area and press Apply afterwards.


Coat

This tool allows to add coating over the layer in non-destructive way. It is similar to VoxLayer, but you may defune area using curves and change corner points later.


Tube/Array

Tube On Curve.


Bend Volume

Bend the object around the curve.


Swep along Guide

The swept surface will be generated by moving profile along selected curve-guide. After appear Tool Options dialog You need select profile-curve. The new item in VoxTree will be created and the mesh will be placed there. Select the corresponding object in VoxTree to be able to change parameters like thickness, angle, twist-angle, etc. Delete the corresponding VoxTree element to stop filling the curve.


Surface of revolution

The Rotate surface will be generated by revolution the selected profile around selected curve-axis. After appear “Tool Options dialog” You need select curve-axis. The new item in VoxTree will be created and the mesh will be placed there. Select the corresponding object in VoxTree to be able to change parameters like thickness, Angle, TwistAngle, etc. Delete the corresponding VoxTree element to stop filling the curve.


Polyhedron

The Polyhedron will be generated by revolution ang moving the selected profile around selected curve-axis. After appear “Tool Options dialog” You need select curve-axis. The new item in VoxTree will be created and the mesh will be placed there. Select the corresponding object in VoxTree to be able to change parameters like thickness, Quantity of facets, smoothing. Delete the corresponding VoxTree element to stop filling the curve.
Rotate Surface: The Rotate surface will be generated by revolution the selected profile around selected curve-axis. After appear “Tool Options dialog” You need select curve-axis. The new item in VoxTree will be created and the mesh will be placed there. Select the corresponding object in VoxTree to be able to change parameters like thickness, Angle, TwistAngle, etc. Delete the corresponding VoxTree element to stop filling the curve.


Swept 2 Guide

The Sweep Surfaces will be generated by the moving profile along 2 curve guides. After “Tool Options dialog” appears, you must select 2 curves: guide curve and curve profile. The new item will be created in VoxTree and the mesh will be placed there. Select the corresponding object in VoxTree to be able to change parameters like thickness, number of faces, smoothing. Delete the corresponding VoxTree object to stop filling the curve.


Swept 2 Gener

The Sweep Surface will be generated by by moving of 2 profiles along the selected guide-curve. After appear “Tool Options dialog” You need select second guide and curve-profile. The new item in VoxTree will be created and the mesh will be placed there. Select the corresponding object in VoxTree to be able to change parameters like thickness, Quantity of facets, smoothing. Delete the corresponding VoxTree element to stop filling the curve.


Swept N Gener

The Sweep Surfaces will be generated by by moving N profiles along two curve-guide. After appear Tool Options dialog You need select second guide and curve-profiles. The new item in VoxTree will be created and the mesh will be placed there. Select the corresponding object in VoxTree to be able to change parameters like thickness, Quantity of facets, smoothing. Delete the corresponding VoxTree element to stop filling the curve.
