Retopo Menu

Retopo Menu

Import

Import a mesh file from disk to use as a Retopo Object. The imported geometry will be created into the current Retopo Object.

Export

Export all of the visible geometry in the Retopo Room as a mesh file to disk.

Export Selected

Export only the selected Retopo Object’s geometry as a mesh file to disk.

Export Separate Retopo Objects

Export all of the Retopo Objects to a single file, with each Retopo Object being a mesh container/item in the file, to disk.

Export as DXF for Laser Cutting

Exports the current UV Map as a DXF file to disk, with the UV seams as a pattern for laser cutting. Useful for when you want to make a pattern for something and then assemble it physically.

Use Visible Paint Objects as Retopo

Creates geometry in the currently selected Retopo Object, from all of the visible Paint Objects. UVs will remain intact from the Paint Object.

Select Faces Picking Method

Change the selection mode for the Retopo Room between vertices, polygons and edges.

Apply Symmetry to All Objects

Creates a symmetrical copy of the existing geometry of the current Retopo Object. The geometry it creates is not virtual as with Symmetry Mode.

Apply Symmetry to Current Object

Creates a symmetrical copy of the existing geometry of the current Retopo Object. The geometry it creates is not virtual as with Symmetry Mode.

Virtual Mirror Mode

When you turned off, it allows you to create actual geometry when Symmetry is turned on. When this is turned on, virtual geometry will be displayed so that you can see your mesh symmetrically.

Auto Unwrap Attached Faces

This feature will unwraps polygons automatically as they are created, if they are connected to an island that is already unwrapped on the UV map.

Unwrap

Performs a UV unwrap using the GUUV unwrapping method.

Close Holes

Closes any holes in the geometry of the current Retopo Object.

Remove N-Gons

Removes any N-Gons in the current Retopo Object. N-Gons are polygons with 5 or more edges.

Clear Mesh

Clears the geometry from the current Retopo Object.

Subdivide

Subdivides the geometry of the current Retopo Object.

Relax

Relaxes the geometry of the current Retopo Object.

Save/Load Retopology States

Allows you to save and load your retopology work to disk, externally of 3DCoat.
