Supports the following 3rd Party Renderers

Why use Sculpt?

Many 3d models imported into 3ds Max from CAD and BIM software have geometry issues. Sculpt is designed to repair and fix these issues as efficiently as possible.

Overview

Sculpt is not designed as a 'one-click' solution to fix an entire imported scene in one go. Use Sculpt by working through an imported 3D model in manageable groups or sections.

Sculpt diagnostic tools will assist users in identifying many types of issues and provides follow-up tools to fix these.

Please note. The retopologizing tools will not rebuild an entire detailed Revit model. The retopology massing tool is designed to fix typical block architectural massing 3d models exported from CAD and BIM that contain stacked, triangulated and damaged geometry. It rebuilds these as clean geometry.

Use the rotopologize plane tool to recreate a new quad-mesh from messy overlapping faces.



Features

  • Find and remove double faces and isolated vertices.
  • Retopologize imported architectural block massing 3D models.
  • Retopologize surfaces and terrains with a live visual guide.
  • Bulk detach and attach with multiple options.
  • Unify polygon and mesh normals.
  • Manipulate material IDs and smoothing groups of multiple objects.

Requirements & Supported Software

  • Static MacID
  • Autodesk 3ds Max 2015 - 2021
