  1. Something I've been wanting and asking for for a long time.

    Moving the Measure line

    With the measure tool you can draw out a line from one place to another, but it's there a way to then move that line with a gizmo?
  3. Frankly I never liked this because I use Space VERY often when switching tools. One place where it always bugs me is the Split Rings tool in Retopo. If I have that tool active every time I hit Space to switch tools I get the text box instead. The only way to avoid it is to zoom out and move the mouse outside the object, then hit Space.
  4. I can agree with that. Like in LightWave the more you drag on the mini-slider the faster the numbers go. So when you first start you get fine precision but then you can go faster if you need to.
  5. This Trace mode looks like the sculpting features we've had since the beginning. Am I missing something?

    Retopo - next big Step

    Good idea! I use "Select Open Edges" in LightWave to find holes in the mesh. It would be nice to have it in 3DC too.
  7. Especially when the developers give so much and ask so little.
  8. Thanks I would like to once I get to know it better. Meanwhile Glen Southern does some really good tutorials on it. Anyway, back to 3DC.
  9. It could be possible that parts of 3DC, or even the whole thing, could be made to work in VR. I don't know, so I ask. I tell you, it's really cool to be able to walk around your model while you're working on it. Especially a car model. You really get a sense of scale like you can't do on a 2D screen.
  10. Thanks and yes I agree.
  11. Because car modeling came up, as I said GS is used a lot for that so I was reminded of my question. It's a public forum you know, every post isn't a reply to you.

    Ender 3 v2 review

    If anyone's interested I've posted a new video reviewing Creality's Ender 3 v2 FDM printer. I show what's in the box, quickly assemble it, then show some prints made with it. Finally I discuss the specs and things I Like and don't like about it.
  13. Speaking of car modeling. I've been starting to learn Gravity Sketch, which is apparently used by a lot of car designers in the automobile industry. Any thoughts on bringing 3DC to VR in some way? I'd love to see it on the Quest 2.
  14. Here's a quick video of 3D mouse navigation. In the video I could not get the brush to move while rotating but I tried it a little more after recording and I could get it to move but there's a major lag. Instead of brushing smoothly it skips.
  15. See I thought I remembered making transparency by erasing on that layer. It's been a while since I painted, especially with transparency.
