[Solved] New draw lines shapes

Recommended Posts

Retopo Draw lines , mpst pf the time are not precise drawing them, not accurate.

You can't draw and follow precisely straight edges.

You can't draw perfect circles and elipses, or bezier curves to follow high res geometry. Those shapes are common to hard surface models.

 

The other disadvantage is a line is only two points, while most of the time you would need lines subdivided.

 

In this example, with shapes like Circle or ellipse and choosing some subdivision , it would be easy to perfectly match Voxel hard surface volumes using precise draw lines.

Same for the straight lines, clicking on two points 3D coat could draw a line , with subdivision it would draw many straight segments.

This is really missing in the retopo for hard surface voxels.

While it's already possible in Blender with Vertex extrude, edge subdivide, and circle or ellipse curves to draw precise edges to make faces to retopo.

Why can't i edit my previous post ?

 

To resume drawing precise shapes to make faces  :

1) straight lines with subdivision option

2) Circle and ellipse with subdivision option

3) Bezier curve with subdivision option

 

And the ability to create some surface using and connecting two guides.

For example two subdivided lines, two circles subdivided, subdivided line and bezier curve.

Try using Draw Strokes changing Number of segments.

Use Shift + LMB to draw straight lines.

You can use the Shape Draw modes in the E-Panel to draw extremely accurate lines or shapes, with the STROKES tool. I asked Andrew repeatedly, for a long time, to get that functionality. He finally added it.
