How do i sculpt a straight line, been looking for a while but no luck.
I have bugged the developers to put a line tool in the paint tools and sculpt tools, for a long time, but nobody seems interested. Hopefully one of the coders will have a need for such at some point, and code it in. Eventually I will go bug them again.
(edit) I think the biggest use for a line tool would be in texture paint mode in the 3D and UV windows.
can you add a plane and remove one side = one line
hope they get a line too !
A “line” tool in sculpt mode would be very usefull in some instances (especially when you don’t use a tablet as drawing straight line with a mouse is not really easy.)
I think he means with the sculpt tools.
eveywhere would be nice
even for curve or paint mesh ect…
i mean a line is missing
end of the line !LOL
guess i’ll just use a workaround, thanks all. (drawing a straight line with a mouse can be a bitch)
Could you possibly make an alpha brush with the image editor outside, then use it as a sculpt texture brush set to the scale you need to draw the line? I think the sculpt still allows you to rotate the brush to the orientation you want…
You could make a line object and use it with proportional editing to get a line sculpting tool-like effect.
true but he might be using a multires modifier, in which case that wouldn’t work.
modron ur right, it doesn’t come out right using proportional editing and multi-res. have anyone tried sculptris? can sculptris get it done?
I’ve implemented this using a python script as part of a bigger add-on. I’ll probably release it in a few weeks.
Thank you, Crouch! Your add ons are very useful to the community
thanks crouch, you da man!
dat sounds great, thanks Crouch. looking forward to it
Any word on this? A straight line sculpt tool in multires? I really need it. It could very well fit as a new option in the “Stroke Method” in Sculpt Mode.
