Sculpt - Teejay
« on: January 09, 2019, 02:13:09 am »
anyone tried the Sculpt mode for the pencil tool yet
I like it
i have had a quick play and this is how i have been using it.
i drew  two separate lines with the pencil
the second line i was not happy with it and wanted to change it


i activated the sculpt mode  i then drew over the line and changed the course to something i liked better



this is the end result
it cut of first line and left the redrawn line on the same layer.(usually every line is on its on layer )

try it for yourself.

Wow, that is pretty powerful!!  I have not tried it but you can bet I will now!  That's interesting how it leaves it on the same layer like that.  I like how AD is starting to "grow" and get some nice new stuff like this!!

Thanks for the illustration. This will help the rest of us learn.

I can't get it to work….What do you mean by *drew over the line*? I never hit the same line all the way.  :lol02:

I know I'm not too good to explore new things, but I really want to learn.  :yes01:

grethe
draw a line with the pencil
then click the sculpt button
then  start a new line  at any point on the line you drew ....and draw a different path
if this isnt working ...show me what you have got and i might be able to work it out.

i have just found that if you convert a shape to curves the pencil sculpt mode works on the shape
this means that a lot of fiddly edges will become much more easier ..
like leaf edges for example or bites out of chocolate ...(not my chocolate your own...)

i have tried to show what i mean by the example below.

Teejay, I have tried this a dozen times and can't get it to work.  When I do the subtract, iI am left with only the left side of one heart.  Other times, it totally disappears.  When you have time, can you re-do this and maybe add a few more steps?  Like, where are you starting and ending the sculpt?  I started in the node at the top and ended in the node on the bottom but it just won't work for me.  Also which heart layer are you sculpting on?  If you do, can you start a new thread - Mini tut - Sculpting?  Pretty please???

MaryLou, you must first duplicate the original shape, then once the cutting is done, duplicate the result and then subtract between the copy of the original shape and one of the two cutouts.

Here the result is rarely correct, at the end there are always portions of the contour of the deleted part left.
