Hardops or Icetools

(sawsrinath) #1

What plugin is easy to use for hard surface modeling? Hardops or Ice tools? Thanks

Never heard of ice tools

Hard Ops is the grand daddy and I would recommend that, but I also have Speedflow. I find HardOps extremely useful.


I have both for some things, but I sue more hardops.

Thank for the reply guys. I have looked at some tutorials and looks like both of them are pretty good for hard surface modeling. What does it mean by “non- destructive workflow”(which ice tools have)?
Does hardops have this function?

Yes it does, it means you can cut into something with a boolean and hide the “cutter”, allowing you to alter it afterwards if you desire.
I’d heartily recommend checking out some of the HardOps videos to show you it’s power:
