03 CRE­ATE GAPS

3D World - - TUTORIALS -

Some pieces of soft­ware come with the abil­ity to cre­ate gaps when cut­ting a line. This can be a huge time-saver, es­pe­cially when ‘caps’ are added to fill the ends of the cut, cre­at­ing new ge­om­e­try. As ever, you need to be mind­ful with any tech­nique for adding ge­om­e­try – make sure it is cre­at­ing poly­gons that are flow­ing cor­rectly for the fi­nal use. The knife or slice tool can be used to ‘re­topol­o­gise’ any po­ten­tial prob­lem ar­eas back into the de­sired flow.
