Sculpt Bevel improvement and new curve feature requests

1. Can you improvement the corners of the Sculpt Bevel tool?

Usually after doing a Sculpt Bevel, certain corners are ruined.

- Not all corners are like that, but mostly...
- Corners that bend outward
- Corners that bend inward

The point where these two corners meet forms a bad bevel.



I attach an image here.

The point where blue (inner corner) and red (outer corner) meet is distorted.

Can you please improve it to get a little better result?


2. Can you create a curve by tracing the edge of the sculpting model?

For simple corners, you can draw a curve yourself, but

If there are many corners to beveled on, too much effort is required to create curves one by one.



(Curve created using Freeze/Selection to curve)

I tried to create a curve using Curve - Freeze/Selection to curve in the upper menu, but it is not created at the edge and the result is not good. :wacko:


I heard that @Andrew Shpagin recently developed an algorithm that finds edges by improving the Retopo algorithm.

Can you use that technique to create this curve?

  • Created using the edge of the Sculpt model
  • Create a curve by finding an edge within the mask(freeze) area
    • This looks especially cool when working with RGB Curvatures.
      You can create curves from only the outer corners or only the inner corners.


This is a picture of painting the outer and inner corners using RGB Curvature.


when this becomes possible
- You can quickly create a curve.
- You can quickly perform Bevel Sculpt with the created curve.
- By placing additional models on the curve, you will be able to work with details such as frames.


Here is the model file used to capture the image. (2021.76 version)
