    How to Retopo a Mouth-Cavity?

    Oh yes, this helps (I lthink) I'll try it out! Thanks a lot!
  2. Hi again, I really need help on this one. I've managed to make a Voxel-model and to manually retopo the whole thing. But now there is still the inside of the mouth to go and I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I tried making the upper jaw invisible (first the Voxels, then the Retopo-polygons). Then I tried to Retopo the lower jaw in the "points/faces" mode, but the points snapped to the invisible upper jaw insead of the lower jaw. Hmmm.....how would you go about this problem? I've attached some (three) screenshots to better explain my problem. Thanks in advance! Greetings from Schmölau Petra

    Hello and question on Reference-Images

    Hello ajz3d, yes, this helps. Thank you! In the meantime I also found a Quicktip (Notes for using Image Planes) that explains that there is a difference between setup and use of image planes.
  4. Hello all! My name is Petra. I‘m a newbie to 3D-Coat. I‘m also pretty old, so my learning curve is a bit flattened ;-) Over the last years I did all my modelling in C4D (a program which I love dearly), but when I saw the retopo and UV-layout tools of 3D-coat, I just had to download the free trial which I find quite impressive!!! So now I‘m testing the application to find out if I want to buy the software. After a bit of manual reading and tutorial watching, I‘m trying to build my first model with 3D-coat to somehow make sense of the unfamiliar workflow. I already found out, that I will have a lot of questions on the way and I‘m hoping, that I will find some help here:-) On the technical side - I‘m an Apple user: Mac Pro Processor 2 x 2,66 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon Memory 24 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC Graphics ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB Software OS X 10.8.5 (12F45) Here is my first question: I started the project (a deer) by placing reference-images on the x- and y- planes. Works wonderfully but now that the images are in place, I can't seem to get rid of the transform-widget. I tried to use "camera/background/edit image placement", hoping this would toggle the display - it does not. Do you have a hint for me? With friendly greetings from Schmölau (Germany) Petra
