I am kind of new to blender and am just getting use to making things that remain in one position. This question might not make sense but I was wondering if there was anyway, once you've finished modeling say a human body could you put it in a different position, (say in a bath tub with legs up on tub) without sculpting a different thing. Like could I grab parts of my first model whos just standing straight and put them in different positions without messing up the whole mesh? Every time I try and move a body part the whole thing gets messed up. I hope that makes sense... thanks!!!

In Sculpt Mode there's a relatively recent addition called the Pose Brush. It attempts to move parts of your model as though you had rigged it with a skeleton.

  • $\begingroup$ I don't have the pose brush, do I have to download a new version of blender? or can I just add it from the settings in the version I have now?? $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 14, 2021 at 21:27

  • $\begingroup$ I don't think you have to do a face set setup to use the pose brush I was just trying to find what version it was added in $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 14, 2021 at 21:42
