Generate uniform topology?
show user profile  Mr_Stabby
I got some rather angular shapes I need to animate as soft bodies, the current topology is really awful for that purpose. Is there anything I can use to generate physics meshes with uniform-ish topology? Sorta like garment maker or blobmesh.

K, so this might sound really weird Stabby... But... Maybe a blob mesh wrapped around a singular object?

That was the first thing that came to mind out of the blue. No clue if it would work.

I've only used a blob mesh like once before.. I don't think it would give you really tight tight results, more... well.. blobby results.

blobmesh creates itself around target object vertices and doesn't go inside volumes

zBrush DynaMesh, or, better yet, zRemesher tools will do exactly what you asked (and more!).

If you need a quick zremesh done for you, stabbs, just say.

I have seen something similar done with particle flow and blob mesh. You create a grid of particles and then use the object to select / delete the appropriate ones and then blob mesh the result.

But yeah, maybe zBrush is the way to go. :)
