Hi,

Delete cube, add sphere, add plane, tab into edit mode, delete all vertices, turn on retopo, select pen, start drawing topology.

thats the other method im not talking about that. :frowning:

cant i change the totpology of mesh im working on.i found this on blender wiki…

Hi,

The way I’ve described is the way Retopo works. A mesh cannot (as far as I know) target itself. However, if you combine this with CTRL-J to join objects, you can create new retopo-ed patches and join them back in with the original object.
