Hi, I'm wondering if there are resources around here related to a prototyping work flow between Rhinoceros CAD and 3D Coat sculpting (with 3D printing as the output). If anyone has insights they'd be willing to share, I'd be grateful. Thanks dayoldy
TimmyZDesign posted a topic in General 3DCoatHello! I've been exporting my 3D-Coat sculpts as dense quads quite often lately so that I can work with them in Zbrush, and I noticed that there is a help pop-up explanation that says, "Export quads-only raw voxels mesh. The drawback is that it may be not always manifold." The strange grammar aside, I was just wondering what "manifold" means. Does it mean that the exported mesh will not be symmetrical? When I work on the mesh in Zbrush, symmetry seems to work fine so far, so I'm not sure what this "drawback" really is. Does anybody know? Thanks! -Tim Z.
