    Vertices snapped at the wrong side of the model

    Many times I'll find myself in a situation that while doing retopology, some vertices will snap on the back of the model instead of the side I'm editing. First of all I wanted to ask if there is a way to avoid this misshap, and second I was wondering if there is a way to move those vertices back where I want (move tool most of the times won't work in this situation), or do I have to delete the polygon they belong to, and rebuild it?

    3D Scanned Shoe

    I sometimes (often) get asked “why don’t you use zbrush” and honestly I don’t care too, 3dc has an amazing set of tools for my specific workflow when working with 3D scans. Anyway, here’s my Oreo colorway Nike flight cleaned up painted Sculpted retopo’d and UV’d in 3DC. CAA16F70-3F3C-490A-94DB-4FFF10461895.tiff 26FCE1CD-B153-4252-A244-97B5E82208C4.tiff

    Bug in the shell extrude tool

    Hi, in the retopo room, when you select faces, and make a shell extrude, overlaped faces is created:

    Little bug with Delete edge loop

    Hi, In the retopo room, when I delete a edge loop, the vertices of the bound of the mesh are not deleted
  5. Hi, in the retopo room, the split rings tool works incredible great!!, but sometimes you need to make a cut in the middle, and yes, you can do it pressing the space bar and typping "0.50", but it would be much faster if there were any key shortcuts to do this, for example (middle mouse button or CNTR+Click). Thanks! =))
  6. Hello! I just bought it today, hoping that it works because in trial version it doesn't work. Basically what I was trying to say I'm trying to have multiples quads when dragging which is quicker than clicking at each quad. But it doesn't work for no reason. I created points for each quads and then drag the first quad across the screen by holding right click. But it's didn't work, it just gave me only one quad than giving me multiple quads. Does anyone have same problem? Any suggestions? Thank you guys

    Retopo to UV Room and/or Paint Room

    Hello. I have a situation that seems to arise with 3D coat, where I've modeled something in the Voxel Room, and right clicked on it to send it to the Retopo room with Autotopology...tweaked the topology and even UV unwrapped in the Retopo Room. The problem is that the UV set doesn't show up in the UV Room, nor can I see anything in the Paint Room. What am I missing in the workflow? Thanks.
  8. Hi, I was wondering if the following workflow is possible: 1: Sculpt a model using voxels and/or surface tools. 2: Use Autopo to give a nice quad topology to the mesh. 3: From the Retopo room, send the retopo object back to the Sculpt room, so you can sculpt on the retopologized mesh. I guess a workaround is to export the retopo mesh and import it into the Sculpt room, but I hope that isn't necessary. Thanks, Metin
  9. Hi, I'm really glad to use fantastic retopo system in 3D-coat. But, because of flexibility and my lack of talent, I made many many twisted polygons in my retopo mesh. (twisted polygon: I don't know correct name. the polygon which has two edges that not in one plane.) Could I see the twisted polygon more visibily(like heat map) or is there any tips avoid the twisted polygon?

    Retopo editing issues

    I've been editing an existing retopo and saving my progress along the way. However, when I reopen the file, it is showing only the original version. My edits aren't shown until I use "delete edge" on it or click the retopo layer "hide" and "unhide" it. I'm not sure how to export my edited version. Any advice would be great, thanks

    How to retopo to an imported sphere?

    I'm relatively new to 3dcoat and it's workflow for retopo. I am trying to retopo my sculpt to a sphere. It seems like I could import a mesh for the retopo, or generate one and 3dcoat, but I have not had any success figuring out how to do this. Importing a low poly sphere with its UV map would be ideal. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Paint without Retopo and UV

    Hi ! I painted my model without using retopology and UV mapping. It is possible to export the texture in this way ?
  13. Ich habe mal angefangen einen Cartooncar von mir zu retopoen. Hat bis hier ganz gut geklappt. jetzt steck ich aber fest, da ich nicht weiß, wie ich einzelne Teile und Auswahlen meiner Vorlage unsichtbat machen kann, um auch die eEinzelnteile und Innenflächen meiner Vorlage zu retopen. Irgendwo habe ich gelesen, daß man die Vorlage aufsplitten kann und dann Teile unsichtbar klicken kann. Das scheint hier aber irggendwie nichht zu gehen oder? Vielleicht finde ich hier Hilfe? Tipps und Tuts etc.?

    Help with symmetry retopo

    So I'm retopologizing a head for the first time in 3d coat, and it's going great, except for the symmetry will sometimes break. Heres what I mean: One second the symmetry will be working perfectly, and then, as per my first screenshot, it only shows the geometry that overlaps the x-axis. Disabling symmetry reveals that everything is normal on the one side, but if I toggle it back on the same thing happens. Is too much geometry over the line? No amount of undoing will fix this problem. This has happened twice now. Thanks for your help!
  15. I'm currently working on some Retopo. I've always liked 3d coat and its retopo tools, but recently I feel certain things are slowing me down. I've been using hotkeys and stacks to speed up which I enjoy. The Select tool seems slow though. Is there a way to use Lasso/Marquee tool to select verts,edges, and faces? Thanks
  16. Hi, I imported a high poly object into the sculpt room to use as a retopo reference. It was too small so I scaled it up with the Gizmo. Switched over to the Retopo room and built a retopo mesh over it. Exported the retopo mesh; which is now too large compared to the original high poly reference mesh when it is appended as a new subtool back in Zbrush. What is the proper workflow here to handle scale issues. The original high poly mesh was sculpted in Zbrush and is a proper size ( approx. 2.0-2.0-2,0 in tha software). Thanks in advance- I looked through the forums but must have missed the answer.

    How to choose the baking side?

    Is there any way to choose the other side of retopology for baking? I copied the right side of the jacket to the left and I need to bake the left side but by default the bake is right. Is there any way to choose the other side? That's what I'm doing http://take.ms/f7JjI

    [Solved] Retopo Strokes not working ?

    Hey, In the middle of a retopo (female character), I grabbed the strokes tool to create a few loops around the fingers, in this case, set my segments and hitting Enter gives no result (Or it appears to not). After trying multiple times on different fingers, legs and the body there is some kind of geo there, but its as if its all collapsed in on itself and would be a nightmare to unravel it. I'm using version 4.18.15D(DX54), is this an issue with the reference mesh or a possible bug?

    UV Stacking

    Hi folks, I have a question with regard to UVs. I have read other threads on a similar subject but found now solution. - I am using only 3DC and I have a Scene I have done in the sculpt room. Its made of 3 separate Meshes. - I make a Low-res decimated version of the the scene and export that as an .obj. - Move over to Retopo room and import that Low red version via the 'import retopo mesh' - Once that is done I do all the seems on each mesh, unwrap each mesh. all on separate UVs (or at least I think it is. they are not overlaped in the 'UV preview' - Then Bake the normal to tranfer over the detail from my High Res to the Low Res Version. and here is where I have my issue - I move over to the paint room and even though on the Bake process it asked me about the three UVs I wanted to bake. in the paint room they are just stacked on top of each other...why? (Note, I looked in the UV room and they are stacked in there too and cant seem to find a way to separate them.) I am miffed :S Cheers.

    [Solved] Retopo to Paint

    Hey all, I've been having some issues in 3D Coat when I attempt to transfer from the Retopo room, baking my retopology, to the paint room. I looked into several forums that I stumbled upon in my googling adventures and there are a few individuals who seem to have a similar problem, calling it a bug but not mentioning any possible solutions to the issue. However, I am uncertain to whether it is a bug or simply an error on my part. Here is what's happening. I start in the retopo room and go to bake the object using Bake into scene (microvertex). I then adjust the outward mesh, then I work on the inner part. I've found that in order to get more of the internal from being visible I must use the brush tool to adjust the depth (rather blindly). BUT, after a certain amount of time there are still points in which I cannot get to hide. Once I've done what I can manage I continue on. (note: the image below does include the settings I've been using, but I've also tried upping it to 4K which doesn't seem to help any) Now, once I get to the paint room I've discovered that numerous chunks of my model are broken and littered with transparent scars. This is not the first time this has happen to me. However, last time I could fix it by creating a new layer and using the brush to fiddle with the depth (which essentially covered/erased the marks). This time though, it's not helping. Is this some sort of bug? An error on my part? If it is a fault of my own, does anyone have a suggested solution?

    [Solved] Retopo Symmetry problems

    Hey, I continue to run into this problem. Sometimes all I have to do is undo a few times, but most of the time this doesn't solve it. My retopo mesh suddenly doesn't show when I turn on symmetry back on again, sometimes it does but just barely visible in a strange behavior. It's very random when it happens, how can it be avoided and fixed when it occurs? P.S, I don't turn on symmetry mid-way, I always turn it on before I begin retopo. Before symmetry: After: Another example: Using version 4.8.07
  22. I'm seeing duplicate edges on my retopo... and they're really difficult to remove (del edges tool sometimes do not 'select' them automatically even though I mouse-over them) is this something to do with "cloth" tool in : Sculpt Room -> Objects -> cloth ?
  23. Hi there. I have some vertices under my Ref mesh, how I can push them out ? Sincerely, Alvaro
  24. I do not know how to fix this , i have been at it for hours. I can provide the save for anyone interest in trying to fix or maybe someone can tell me. Every time i bake i get either a super weird normal map and very weird AO that has weird artifacts in it or is just white and black splotches. The normal map looks like it is covered in small bumps or the eye lids are screwed up with other parts doing the same. I am not sure what to do after 4 hours of trying to get it to work. Even if i just try to AO the sculpt and not the retopo with sculpt it does it. here are some pictures. I just want to paint it , export it all to blender and add hair there ( i think it would be easiest to do with some of the tools in blender for hair ). this is only my 3rd sculpt in here. 3d coat is the first program i have sculpted in and it is a awesome program so far. this is also my first time retopoing so im sure some of it is messed up to. those are just 3 times of issues i had even other ones where inside breast had very dark spots on AO and i do not know how to fix, i smoothed to hoping that would fix.

    Missing maps?

    Hi again everyone, So sorry to keep posting my newbie questions. I have been scouring the forums for answers,but can't seem to find the answer I need. I have been testing the baking, even though I have followed the amazing advice from Abranger and lots of videos on you tube, I can't seem to make it work. I am clearly missing a step somewhere. I have my High Poly model and my Low Poly retopo all named and on layers. The Uv seams all done, the uvs packed the way I need them. I have to bake parts separately. After baking a part, I go to the paint room and there is nothing in the texture editor. I turn off the vox tree and there is no lowpoly model with any baked goodies on it. Am, I missing a simple step? All help, very much appreciated.
