Boundary extrusion

3DCoat currently has a powerful set of extrusion tools, you can use either voxExtrude or Bas-Relief,
both had its use cases though: VoxExtrude is for already closed mesh, you “paint” what you want to extrude, while Bas-Relief operates over the voxelized model.
But there’s a third use case: open boundaries and holes, you need to extrude and normalize.
For example in imported scanned objects from medical and technical work where they comes with holes.

CopyClay: the foundation of new tools

Few weeks ago, while I was in Cuba I have announced the development of 3d cloning based tools, at that time I have tried unsuccessfully to upload some testing videos. Well, here’s the real deal 😛

Still is on early stages of development and many things will be polished, but the possibility to creatively clone features of the models (or libraries in the future) is worth showing. Unlike booleans that requires a lot of tweak and manual positioning to seamless bled with the base mesh this tools is very fast and allows to freely experiment with your models.

I hope you will like it!
