忘却まとめ

Function

It is an add-on that summarizes related functions so that you can smoothly perform the following processes.
The specific method of retopo is introduced in the above article.

  1. Create an empty object for Retopo
  2. Adjust display settings for Retopo objects and 3D views
  3. Create polygons from a menu of external add-ons
  4. High Poly Project
  5. Adjustment of mesh flow and shape
  6. Correct while highlighting error mesh

Set up empty object

Create an empty object for Retopo and change various settings to make it easier to retopo immediately.

  • Sets the active object as the project target object
  • Empty object
    • Creates an empty object
    • Bring it to the front
    • Sets the mirror shrinkwrap modifier
  • Enable Snap
  • Snap settings to face
  • If the BSurfaces add-on is enabled, the empty object will be automatically set as the target object

Project

Projects the object in the retopo onto the high poly object so that the shape follows it.
Resolves an issue where the mesh modifier’s affected and actual positions are misaligned during the Shrinkwrap modifier.

  • Internally, it sets a shrinkwrap modifier and applies it immediately.
  • Automatically aligns vertices at axis 0 position

    • Shaped into a beautiful topology

Align vertices at axis 0 position

You can align the vertices of axis 0 position that are misaligned in the project with the object using the mirror.

Display

You can switch the display settings of objects related to Retopo.

  • Mirror modifier settings
  • Shrinkwrap modifier settings

    • Real-time highlighting of error meshes such as triangles and polygons

Highlight


Highlight triangles and polygons in real time.
Use material.
You can select triangles and polygons within the object.

Currently the Mesh Check BGL Edition add-on is upward compatible.

Thanks for the update. Unfortunately I get this error message when I activate EdgeFlow in the preferences of Lazy Retopo.
ModuleNotFoundError: No modoule named ‘EdgeFlow’.
It is the version that is linked (I am on Linux).

I was judging external add-ons the wrong way!!
There is a problem that it cannot be judged when the name is different from the assumed name because it is the method that judges it by the file or folder name of the external add-on now.
I’ll fix it as soon as I can.
Thanks for the bug report.

Thank you very much for the answer. I was not sure if this is the right place for bug repots but gumroad does not offer the same possibilities as Blendermarket. :innocent: Maybe it is registered as SetEdgeFlow

ver1.1.1 Bug fixed

  • Fixed the problem that the file name/folder name of external add-on cannot be determined if it is different from the expected name
    • Change the external addon determination method from file name to addon name
  • Fixed an issue where the link to gumroad in the addon settings was incorrect

I have released version 1.1.1 with bug fixes.

Although gumroad does not have a bug reporting function, bug reports are also accepted by email.

I overlooked that, sorry. :blush:
