Brief

This add-on provides easy to access base meshes and some additional workflow tools for quick sculpt doodling and creating quick 3d concepts. It achieves this through the implemented base mesh asset gallery. Any base mesh template that you open via the asset gallery will open in the sculpt mode so that you loose no time with setting things up. You will be ready to sculpt your favorite character in a second.

It is provided as an integrated solution in the form of an add-on and a base mesh asset pack that covers general digital sculpting needs. I built similar type of models from scratch over the years as a professional digital sculptor over and over again. This add-on also addresses that issue of repeating the same steps unnecessarily when working in tight deadlines.

This add-on is a companion tool for expressing sudden burst of creative energy or for daily practice of sculpting.

Concepts

  •  The main concept of this add-on is the template scenes. Opening a base mesh template opens only a clone of the master template, so that you do not need to worry about saving over the base mesh template. This is great, because you will not mess anything up while doodling or worry about where to save. It is similar to sketching over a piece of scrap paper. When ready take it to the next level or just discard it and let them rot in the temp folder.
  • The second concept of this add-on is "committing" Lets say you are happy with the current work that you have created based on a template mesh, then go ahead and commit your work. Committing saves the currently opened work to the predefined folder in the settings.
  • The third one is additional mesh processing tools like being able fuse and process meshes for quickly bashing interesting shapes or adding details.
  • The fourth concept is working with randomly generated meshes
