Improved Primitives

Post by Simon »

Curvy 3D 4.0 will have more primitive types and better control over their creation.

Here is an example Cylinder with variable resolution, to allow for low-poly items as well as easier to sculpt hi-poly objects.

Multi Res Cube. As well as a bevelled edge, higher res Cubes will keep an even mesh density as they are resized.

Also quad fill for cylinders, please. :D

Please explain? Do you mean quads on the end caps?

Cylinders with quads on the cap ends are important as, in some circumstances, they can create rendering errors without them.

Those look great. Much better for sculpting.

I guess that also counts for spheres - would be good to have well formed quad ends rather than a massive fan at a point.

Sorry for late answer. Dan's picture shows exactly what I meant. Quads all the way to get red of the poles.

Sidetracked on some other projects at the moment, I do have a lot of 3D modelling lined up, and when I model it always pushes me to develop the tools too - so hope that will be good for Curvy.

At the moment I am also mulling over some big UI questions, and not yet settled on answers. Same things I've mentioned before that will allow Curvy grow without getting totally bogged down in complexity (and should also make the existing tools even simpler to use). After that I should be able to get the new features working inside the new UI, and wrap the whole thing up for an early-look beta - but it won't be soon.

Quad Cylinders. Compared to these, Quad Spheres should be easy.

Quad Spheres. More even surface point density, but slightly less convenient UV wrapping.

Curvy is going to be so amazing for kit bashing mechanical designs it is not even funny.
With some sculpting and smoothing, it will be great for organics as well.
