Ball Pen is my experimental tool in blender.
You may think it as a "super snake hook". (some people say Z-sphere)
Sometimes I want to create meshes in 3D space by free hand drawing, for fast concept and solid, and no worry about topology.
- Good for making monster, or backgrounds
- Remesh it
- Easier than sculpting
- In edit mode, right-click context menu to find the tool "Ball Pen". You don't have to select anything.
- Left mouse button to draw, you have to draw on top of something to start, then you can extend your line to anywhere. The depth is determined by view-plane
- Ctrl + Mouse wheel scroll to adjust ball size
- Ctrl + Left mouse button to draw with surface snapping.
- Ctrl + Z to undo
- Q key to confirm the draw
- A key to switch to "rectangle" mode, it will create long box instead of sphere
- G key : move the last stroke
- R key : rotate the last stroke
- Right Click : Select objects (after select, you can press G to move and R to rotate)
If you want to use it in sculpting mode, you can tab to Edit mode when you sculpt, then use this tool, press Q to confirm. After using this tool, you can voxel remesh the mesh (blender's new sculpt remesh is powerful.)
Thank you for your interest. :)
