You can download an experimental test version to play with here. http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=1050475 It's still a little rough, but I think the potential is there. I'm not sure what their long term plans are though. So far it seems to be an educational experiment. The interface is s...

True...

I know that it's no good for detailing, but cool for rapid shaping. Did you ever see this related idea though http://cs.gmu.edu/~ygingold/rigmesh/ ?

pie in the sky

Of course my idea of an ideal mesh for sculpting would be self-optimizing (automatically dynamically adding and removing vertices needed to portray the given level of detail in the model)/self-healing and have a method for performing wonderfully smooth resulting boolean operations. The only issue I ...

Odd 3D drawing app...

that I thought was interesting enough to share for the novelty factor if no other reason.

It could be useful for navigation, but sculpting is still better done on a tablet I believe... the total lack of resistance with hands floating in the air makes it difficult to do precision work. If the thing is programmed and set up to do it... it could somewhat mimic a tablet given the minute chan...

cool work...

You might want to take a look at what 3D-coat has done with implementing their own dynamic tessellation implementation called Live clay... It's a self healing mesh... pretty cool. It's still kind of rough around the edges in my opinion, but still cool.

Tool adjustment settings workflow improvement request

It would be nice if Curvy kept the last settings used (depth, bevel, radius etc.) for each type of object creation tool (line, lathe etc.), and allowed for numbered input as opposed to slider only to be able to keep the settings consistent between objects when desired. If you want to get fancy and a...

Sounds pretty cool

I would like to see this feature fully implemented. I like to sculpt from reference too. So this matches angles and points correct?, or does it try to shape the model as well... either way it's cool.

I'm playing with beta 3.13 now, so I will see if I can figure it out.

possible feature

Lathes are symmetrical by default with one curve of course, but have you thought about adding radial repeat/symmetry for the line tool to go with the lathes? Radial repeat would keep the same orientation but create copies evenly placed along the radius of the point you started the line based on the ...
