After a few months I decided to revisit this and... I've got the answer! It was right under my nose the whole time, right there in the interface - a button called 'Reshape'. Reshape will... okay, I'll let the Blender Manual do the talking: Reshape - Copies vertex coordinates from another mesh. To use, first select a different mesh object with matching ...

Sure thing ! Just after adding your primitive, type F9 or open the foldout in the bottom left of your screen. It will remember the setting for this kind of primitive in the file so next time you add a cube for example the box will be unchecked.

You have to switch to Constant Detail in the Dynotopo panel.

The difference between Adaptive subdivision and Dynamic topology is the way the surface gets subdivided. Both triangulate the mesh but use different algorithms. Adaptive subdivision: each polygon is divided into a number of micro-polygons based on camera distance and screen pixel size these micro-polygons are displaced at render-time with texture the ...

There are two settings that effect what you are trying to do. The detail type method in dyntopo effects the way the detail size is calculated. Relative detail uses the onscreen pixel size as set in detail size when creating new edges and will give more detail the closer you zoom into your model. Changing to constant detail will use the same edge size as you ...

The Multiresulition modifier simply does not work with dynamic topology. When you try to enable dynamic topology with a Multiresulition modifier on the mesh you will get a warning message like this: Warning! Generative Modifiers Detected! Keeping the modifiers will increase polycount when returning to edit mode. Also if you hover over the modifier ...

There is a change from the 2.7x sculpting workflow to 2.8 You can still use dynamic topology but it's not the recommended workflow anymore. The new workflow is sculpting on the static mesh and remeshing. Pablo Dobarros Talk about the new tools and how they work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxkyA4Xslzs Hand on with Julien Kasper using the 2.8 workflow:...

I needed something similar for cutting a mesh in half. After trying all of the brushes, I found that Clay Strips is the cleanest, with little to no pushing in the back. It works for gouging out a surface just as well. These are the settings I used: Brush Strength: 1.500 To save time, you'll want to adjust this depending on the level of detail and the radius ...

This is because of bleed through from the inner faces, facing the opposite direction. The darker color indicates the Normals direction. Try to never have interior faces near the sculpting surface while sculpting. If the hair is a separate object, you can completely remove inner faces, as they serve no purpose. Notice that you will have to do this before you ...

If you hold down the Shift key while making a brush stroke, the Smooth Brush will become active until you release the Shift key. Sculptris uses what people call auto-relax smoothing. I don't believe that Blender currently has anything analogous to that feature. There is a thread hosted on Blender Artists that has been going for a couple years now and it'...

Make sure that under Symmetry \ Lock you turn Lock off. You had lock set to x axis. So the smooth brush was still working but the vertices did not move in the x axis.

You can press Shift+F to adjust the strength of the brush you are currently using. You can also adjust the detail size with Shift+D (This will display as a percentage or as a pixel count depending on the detail type being used.) The manual has an explanation of each one. Changing the radius of the brush with F as needed is also useful.

The best way to map the moon is to use an actual height map. You can find a free usable map here: https://astrogeology.usgs.gov/search/details/Moon/LRO/LOLA/Lunar_LRO_LOLA_Global_LDEM_118m_Mar2014/cub Nothing beats the real thing. If you want to add more detail, use a noise displacement on top of it.

The default cube comes with a UV map (so if you want to apply a texture you're already halfway there) which is what's upsetting Dyntopo. Click on the "Object Data Properties" tab (the green triangle, third from the bottom on the right), then unfold "UV Maps" and click the minus symbol on the right. Dyntopo will no longer complain when it starts, or switch ...

You probably didn't apply scale to your object. In Object Mode with your object selected press Ctrl+A > Apply > Scale

It's because you have Dynotopo enabled in sculpt mode Tools option.It causes generating new geometry each time you use brush. Disable this option to avoid that. And here is the way, you can make the element you need in much faster and easier way:

I was able to fix it by applying the smooth brush with a high strength to the intersected area.

Turn on Constant Detail and the brush should behave the same zoomed in and zoomed out, same detail size but unfortunately the brush size will still increase and decrease by design. edit: Found it, hit that lock there on theleft of the radius and you can zoom in and out and the brush stays the same size :D

You can try to make a new default scene and append your dyntopo object into it - could help, perhaps? Or just copy all the objects to a new project.

This answer is based on Omar Emara's Answer , so be sure to read it before you move on as I won't explain everything that have been answered there. This is the loop to generate polygon However, this loop doesn't take the distances between vertex points into account so I modify the loop to use the Distances output from Find Nearest Points node. As per ...

Adaptive Subdivision A operation to optimize what is happening in a real-time environment like in a game engine. What is happening there is that game probably have a lot of high-resolution models or high numbers of models going on during execution. So Adaptive Subdivision is a way to cut down all the polygons from showing up all the time. If it's not ...

Change the Dyntopo Detail Refine Method settings from Subdivide Collapse to Subdivide Edges.

The quickest method I like to use is a remesh modifier and a decimate modifier. Works nice and fast. This tutorial might also help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUzJefYNQlI

I made a quick test and it might be also that your object has other scale than 1,1,1. The solution is to have your object selected and in the object mode press Ctrl+A and select Scale from the Apply menu. Here I have more than 15 for the Z scale of a cube and the dyntopo sculpt result with the same settings as yours is quite stretched, like yours. After ...

When enabling dynamic topology you have to understand few options for the begginig. (As seen on image) First option "Detail size" controls how much poligons are created when sculpting for example when "Relative detail" is selected the less the detail size is set the more polygons it will create (more detail), but if "Constant detail" is selected then the ...

The solidify modifier not being applied is your problem. Because the original mesh surface was still just a flat plane set, you are equivalently sculpting the flat surface, then solidifying it. Delete the solidify modifier, go to edit mode, select all, select boundary loop (the border of the rectangle), extrude it, and then create a face.

You need to recalculate the normals: in Edit mode, select all and press ShiftN

Dynamic Topology lets you work with three types of detail. Relative detail This method uses a detail size based on the number of pixels, and in turn will create topology in that size. Zoom out big details, zoom in small fine details. Constant Detail To keep detail uniform across the entire object, Constant Detail can be used. The Detail is based on ...

You cannot effectively use the mirror modifier with dynamic typology (or sculpting in general, for that matter). Remove the modifier and then under the Dyntopo settings in a sculpt mode, ensure the "Direction" setting is correct and click "Symmetrize". You may get some pinching down the mirror axis, but this can be smoothed out manually. After that, go to ...
