This is an extremely useful tool , especially for round or lathed objects, which I’ve longed for ever since sculpting was implemented in Blender
Here is a practical example right to the point
A vase is created and ornamented in ZBrush 3.x.
You can only see one red dot/brush, but in reality the brush is repeated around the model “n” times, to symmetrically affect it, something which is not possible right now in Blender.
I don’t think that the implementation of such a feature is technically difficult, besides, Blender coders have worked miracles lately. But this is a VERY useful feature that I would like to have available.
Please forward this message to whoever is in charge of such planning. Posting in the Blender tracker is a riddle to me.
Hope it makes it in 2.5
Edit: if someone does so, please post a reply so that i will know this got through to someone
