3D-Coat – Update 4.5.38 – 40 (beta)

blog_updateInfos for 3D-Coat – Update 4.5.38 (beta)


  • Now you can bake sculpt objects onto current paint mesh.
    Use Retopo->Update paint mesh. It will keep painted textures and updates normalmap and layers related to the existing sculpt volumes. It simplifies the workflow when you need to change something in geometry on a very late stage. Also you may bring paint mesh to sculpt room directly using Geometry->Paint mesh->Sculpt mesh.
  • If you select some volume via „H“ key the VoxTree list will be scrolled to the volume layer position.

Improvements & Fixes

  • „Ignore back faces“ works for Move tool in surface mode.
  • Material navigation in UV mapping mode tweaked (Speed of transformation).
  • Color picker gets color from everywhere on screen. In color picker dialog clicking outside the picker window will pick color as well. „V“ hotkey works there as well.
  • Toggle Freeze works correctly now.
  • Primitive history works correctly for voxels as well.
