Mudbox - Duplicate parts of mesh?
show user profile  Metal_Edge
Hi MF!

It's been ages since I posted anything here, but still lurking around and checking in almost every day =)

I have a question for you mudbox pros here; Is there a way to duplicate parts of the mesh and preferably mirror them aswell? Sort of like the mirror tool in max.

I've had no luck with mirroring so far. I have also tried exporting the selected part to a file and importing that into the scene, but then everything gets imported i.e. lights, cameras etc. and I can't get rid of (delete) those extra bits it seems, and then the lighting gets screwed up since there's duplicates of everything.

This is prolly something really simple, but too hard for me it seems =)

Please tell me if you have stumbled upon this problem and have a solution for it, or if you can point me in the right direction.


regards,

From max? ... in which case, "Export Selected" is your friend, not the standard export (which will export everything it can, depending on file format)

Thanks Dave, but no, I exported the selected part from Mudbox into a new mudbox scene, but when I then import that into my 'old' scene the lights, cameras etc. are also imported.

It seems that they too are exported along with the selected geometry somehow.

I know this sounds a bit vague, hope you understand what I mean =)

yeah i've had this problem too, there is no mirror object tool in Mudbox you have to duplicate the object and position on the opposite side manually
