TT SUbD 2.1.4 For Sketchup
TT SUbD 2.1.4 for Sketchup: A Powerful Tool for Subdivision Modeling
Sketchup is a popular 3D modeling software that allows users to create and edit various types of models, from architectural designs to organic shapes. However, Sketchup has some limitations when it comes to creating smooth and complex surfaces, especially with curved or rounded edges. This is where TT SUbD comes in handy.
TT SUbD is a parametric subdivision extension for Sketchup that is optimized for quad-based workflows. It enables users to subdivide quads (four-sided polygons) in Sketchup and create smooth and detailed meshes with minimal effort. TT SUbD is perfect for organic modeling, as it can produce realistic and natural-looking forms with ease.
How to use TT SUbD
To use TT SUbD, users need to have a quad-based mesh in Sketchup, which can be created using various tools and plugins, such as QuadFace Tools, Vertex Tools, or Artisan. Alternatively, users can import quad-based meshes from other software, such as Blender or ZBrush.
Once the quad-based mesh is ready, users can select it and go to Extensions > SUbD > Subdivide Selection. This will apply the subdivision algorithm to the mesh and create a smoother and more refined version of it. Users can adjust the level of subdivision by using the slider in the SUbD toolbar or by pressing the + or - keys on the keyboard.
Users can also edit the subdivided mesh using the standard Sketchup tools, such as Move, Rotate, Scale, Push/Pull, etc. TT SUbD will automatically update the mesh according to the changes made by the user. Users can also toggle between the original and the subdivided mesh by pressing the Tab key on the keyboard.
Features and benefits of TT SUbD
TT SUbD has many features and benefits that make it a powerful and versatile tool for subdivision modeling in Sketchup. Some of them are:
It is fast and efficient, as it uses a custom-written C++ library that runs natively in Sketchup. It can handle large and complex meshes without slowing down or crashing Sketchup.
It is parametric and non-destructive, as it preserves the original quad-based mesh and allows users to edit it at any time. Users can also undo or redo any changes made to the mesh using the standard Sketchup commands.
It is compatible and interoperable, as it supports various file formats and plugins that work with quad-based meshes. Users can export or import their models to or from other software, such as Blender, ZBrush, 3ds Max, Maya, etc., using formats such as OBJ, FBX, STL, etc.
It is flexible and customizable, as it offers various options and settings that allow users to control the appearance and behavior of the subdivided mesh. Users can adjust the crease weight, smoothness, sharpness, symmetry, UV mapping, etc., of the mesh using the SUbD toolbar or dialog box.
It is intuitive and user-friendly, as it follows the standard Sketchup workflow and interface. Users do not need to learn any new commands or tools to use TT SUbD. They can simply use their existing Sketchup skills and knowledge to create stunning subdivision models.
TT SUbD 2.1.4 for Sketchup is a powerful tool that allows users to create smooth and complex subdivision models in Sketchup with ease.
