Join Nick Kloski for an in-depth discussion in this video Preventing out-of-control meshes, part of Meshmixer: Sculpting and Shaping.
- This is the video you would come to if you modeled…something in a CAD program or downloaded something online…that was from the CAD program, you bring it in Meshmixer…and bad bad things start happening to your model…the moment you touch it and I'll explain why.…I'm going to go here to import.…I'm going to import a CAD model that I made…in Fusion 360, which is very nice…but I want to put some maybe adornments…on the sides here, so I'll go into sculpt…to draw the nice tool to create some volume on the mesh.…
Good strength, refinement is turned on,…reduction so this should be a really nice tool.…I'm going to make my brush a little bit bigger…and I'll just start sculpting and my entire model…just starts freaking out, maybe I should go over…here and instantly I have something that is not printable…with reversed faces, inside out, just not good at all.…What happened?…Well Meshmixer really really wants to use triangles.…If I press W, you can see that my tool,…my draw tool has created a lot of these beautiful triangles.…
