So much thank your kind tutorial. ^^v
I can understand well about some tools for your tutorial.
Nowdays I am changeing model tool from blender to hexagon.
(blender is awesome cool tool, but I feel as if someguys chooking my breath when I see the screen,,)
I hope you keep this thread and sometimes ( though manytimes is best,,) up new tutorial.
(this is my mini memo,
Hexagon sometimes stopped when I use both soft manipulation and symmentry option,
then symmentry shape break before I knows,, do not you think so?
I read this solution, from artist blog,
when use symmentrical and soft selection,
1. select vertex
2 shift + click select the vertex( colored) opposite side,
then use soft selection.
not so good? )
You’re welcome. ...
In checking out some ‘new’ ways to create stuff for a tut; think I may have something rather awesome coming this way ... it will take some time though for me to finish it. Like a week or so. It’s a sash for those who might want yet another one lol ...
hmm ... okay ... for ‘learning projects’ first off, I’d recommend not using .obj files imported from other sources. All the various modeling programs have their ‘communication issues between each other’. Hexagon can work with symmetry for the basic starts in modeling ... but once one starts extracting lines, etc ... symmetry may work; might not. If there’s any ‘decision’ to be made, Hexagon cannot make it and it will either freeze or crash. So we must keep things ‘simple’ ... if you’ve created the item in Hexagon and you know it has symmetry; then yes it can be used. If you’re using an .obj from elsewhere and/or an .obj that has had a lot of work done on it; symmetry may or not work; experience over here is usually that it’s not worth it. Work on the one side of the item ... if it’s something to have symmetry ... put a nice line straight through the centre ... cut away half of the item; then use the other symmetry tool to make a symmetrical half to join back to it.
Here’s the pics ... put together in a .pdf for convenience. When I clicked on the link it came up viewable online with a working download button. You do not need to sign in to anything to download this one.
