    Spline projection results off the mark

    That's fairly strange. It looks to me like its always directly projecting the tool from the front view. Does this also occur on a new file test?

    Incorrect Curve Stroke mode.

    I disagree, seems logical for it to alter the mesh where the line falls on the mesh, and indeed if you wrapped it around the mesh in 3d space it would still work. If it just popped up directly towards the view port not only would that cause problems any time you used it in non-orthographic mode, but it wouldn't work for any lines defined in 3d space. There are plenty of nice tools that do things based on the view port, perhaps try one of them instead?

    Incorrect Curve Stroke mode.

    It's a perspective issue. The mesh is altered not from your veiwport but directly under where the stroke occurs on the surface of the mesh.

    Add 2nd video card to PC

    For rendering it will use the cards not in SLI mode. SLI mode just makes it into one more powerful but less useful card essentially. I don't think you'll see big difference though with the 750ti helping the 1060, maybe no difference at all. The 750 is just likely too slow to keep up. Can always do a couple of benchmark render runs to test out if the combo is faster though just to be sure.
  5. I'm running a 1700 (as the differences between the x version and not x didn't really seem to matter that much to justify the price) and from what I've seen and read the 2700 is a very good chip. As I understand it however they should be releasing their next batch in the first or second quarter of this year. In which case you may want to wait and see, because the leaked specs seem very promising, and in any case it should drop the prices of the 2700 down as well. Pretty sure there a few people here who run the 2700 and can chime in with their experiences.

    Tips for making a Katana?

    Well done it looks fairly good. If you want you can edit the pose falloff line in order to give the scaling, extrusion, and translate posing a convex profile or a constant profile as well: And my suggestion to try and get a convex look:

    Tips for making a Katana?

    I've got to be honest. I'm impressed with what you have managed, but I have to ask why you don't model it in Blender or some other program and then import it for sculpting? More directly if you are intent on doing the whole thing in the sculpt room I'd try using the cut off tool or hide voxel tool and just try and position the camera the right way to clip away the tip a bit at a time. With the voxel hide tool you can actually use a brush and may be able to carefully hide it away and then delete hidden when you get what you want.

    PBR Smart Materials Store Beta!

    Is that a fact? I didn't see it anywhere. If so I would definitely sign up for a bit to gets some points. Edit: Ah I see it now! Thanks for the heads up I'm just pretty happy they made the store at all. I truly hate making materials, I have no interest in it, and to have a bunch of stuff available in a native files for 3d coat is just great.

    PBR Smart Materials Store Beta!

    I think the problem for many people in regards to the sub model is it presupposes a certain type of work flow. But for individuals or small project makers who cover one thing at a time we tend to need a bunch of materials at one time, and then long periods without needing it. If for instance the points stack from month to month with a sub that would be no problem you just save up enough to grab what you need when you need it, but if you are limited to that amount of points for that month only then it creates a situation where people have to sub long enough to build up an individual library on their computers guessing at what they might need in the future. To me, as an outsider, I think the pay for points model would make the most sense for lower throughput users, or selling packages etc. I think if they calculated a higher dollar per point (in comparison to their subscription model) for that kind of sale it would be worthwhile looking into.

    Blender Applink

    Nice. Thank you for all the work you've put into this.

    Blender Applink

    Are both programs running at the same time? Are you in the right room for the type of export you are selecting in Blender (ie. "mesh to voxel" would be in the sculpt room)? It works fine for me, but I can't really tell what problem you are having.

    Reptopo Quads issue

    When I have problems like that, and the points/faces tool wont give a face there, I use the points/faces tool to put a point where I want the vertex of the quad and then go over to the quads tool which will snap to that point.

    I also would prefer to buy a set amount of points and just have them for when I need them. I looked but it didn't seem clear, do the subscription points stack up and are saved for later or is it a monthly limit? If they are saved to an account that is also a workable model for me. Otherwise a person has to go through the whole rigmarole of signing up for the months when they need them and then canceling for a the months in which they don't.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    Yes. At the very least I'd like to be able to move the toolbar from the left side and maybe be able rearrange things a bit more. 3DC's UI not bad as it is, indeed I kind of like many things about it, but as with everything in life it could be better.
