  10. Carlosan's post in Does 3DCoat have a node-based texture/material system? was marked as the answer   
    This node editor only is available as shader editor (sculpt shaders), not material editor (aka SPainter)
    To access nodes on Sculpt room, RMB over any sculpt shader and press RMB to edit it.

    Edit nodes open Shader Editor panel

    Node editor system on Paint Room is currently in development, we hope to publish first release soon.

    In this videos we are going to look at the three different mesh types that exist in 3DCoat they are associated with the three primary workspaces paint, retopo, and sculpt.
    The tweak room and the UV room are companion workspaces to the paint workspace in the sense that they work exclusively on paint objects.
    This video series are a good beginning to understand 3DC rooms, please take a look
    Hope it help

  17. Carlosan's post in Beginner questions was marked as the answer   
    - Hello
    Is the general workflow to model with the voxels and then to turn it all into a more simple mesh to get clean lines at the end of the process?
    Yes, use voxel for rough sketches, then use this base mesh to add clean lines doing retopo at Retopo room, or modifying on Modeling Room.
    You could have more resolution working in voxels if you have a high end comp, otherwise the traditional thing is to convert the model to surface mode and continue working from there.
     it's trial and error until you find your way to work.
    These videos show how each artist uses different ways to create hard surfaces.
    There is some tools very useful as 

    - Vox Hide
    - Sketch
