Voxel tools failing on constant lines

Recommended Posts

Hi,

First time trying to sculpt in 3D Coat, everything was going fine using the Move tool to adjust the shape but then when I tried to do a constant small line the brush kept failing. If you check the image you can understand, all that spaced dots were supposed to be a line.

Not a tablet problem, the same thing happens using the mouse.

Can you guys help me?

Thank you.

Using Command > resample (space bar) try incresing voxlayer density to tris: 1.000.000 to get better result.

On this model Voxel Resolution is very low to get fine details using small cursor size.

Thanks Carlosan, it helped a lot.

It still happens sometimes even with 5.000.000 density but I guess I can live with it.

I also noticed if I do the lines slowly is worse than doing it quickly (images attached).

Anyways, if you have any other recommendation to make it better let me know.

Thanks again.

Voxels are like 3D pixels (made of clay, let's say) and are very good for creating a model that needs only surface details added. It is the preferred medium for doing booleans without errors and for blocking out shapes.

Use surface mode to add fine details (especially with the automatic tessellation used in the  Live Clay tools).
