Hey everyone... As I did not have much knowledge with 3d-coat in relation to Define Measurement Units and Edit Scene Scale. I started a project without paying attention to these two important settings that are found in the Geometry menu. I would like to ask the help of all of you to used this topic to explain the subject better and with that you would help others who use 3D-Coat. Doubt 1) In a project I'm working on, only now that I've realized that the values in the Edit Scene Scale are all changed as you can see in the image I've attached. If I change the value of SceneScale to 1 will what happens in my file? I would have problems if I change this value which is currently 137.963562 for 1? Could I change units from millimeters to meters? Because it is in millimeters... Could someone explain it better? Doubt 2) I realized that by default 3D-Coat uses millimeters. I would like to have a 1: 1 ratio between 3D-Coat and Blender because of a 3d print job and I also believe it will help in mesh workflow for animation and games. Currently in 3d-coat version 4.8.21, what would be the best configuration between 3d-coat and blender without there being any problems in the scale and positioning when it imports -> exports -> imports again for 3D-Coat? I realized that when I use these 2 programs, the scale almost always changes. Maybe because I do not know how to configure. Sometimes the sculpture when it returns to the 3d-coat comes either large or small and the pivot gets altered also causing the sculpture to be located in another position completely different from when I exported. I think using meters would be the best unit of measure because I've read that physical simulations, displacement maps and other things will be best produced when configured using actual measurements of the world in meters. How do you work with Measurement Units and How does the Edit Scene Scale work? Doubt 3) How to properly set up each project (for 3D print? for Games? for animation?) What would you advise for 3d-coat users in the initial scene setup within 3d-coat? Anyone who is knowledgeable in this subject, please share with the whole community about all of these subjects that I mentioned above. This is very important... Thank you for your attention and help.
Rygaard posted a topic in General 3DCoatHey everyone, I have 3 doubts: 1) Saving a mesh or object from VoxTree in 3b format. Can this 3b object keep all the work done on layers of sculpture related to it? In the test I did, the 3B file does not save sculpt layers relating to the mesh of the VoxTree layer that I saved in .3b when I import this .3b file. With you, do the same thing happen? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 2) I was thinking of separating objects from VoxTree (dismember the project into mini projects) where the main file could be lighter and smaller ( just a container for the mini files .3b files that are part of the same project ). An example would be a sculpture of a character. I separated in the Vox tree : * Character Container |_ character mesh |_ Clothes |_ Accessories. I would like to do something similar to what happens in the Blender program. Having a main file and in it I would use the Append or Link method as needed. When I worked on a 3b mesh and saved, it would automatically modify file 3b. and in the main project this file would be updated and modified. Could I do something like that? ------------------------------------------------------- 3) You could kindly indicate to me an open source or free program so that I can fully organize myself in my private projects in the sense of task and asset management, calendar and etc (preferably it is just a single program for better usability). The program I was testing was Redmine, but it's complicated in upgrades and stuff. I also saw an opensource program called Tactic, but I did not understand anything, very complicated and I did not find any video that would explain the running beginner users like me. thank you
