Features of Polyviews
- Enhanced Mesh Manipulation: Polyviews provides advanced controls for selecting, transforming, and manipulating vertices, edges, and faces. This makes it easier to make precise edits and modifications to your 3D models.
- Mesh Analysis Tools: The addon includes tools for analyzing and inspecting mesh topology, such as checking for non-manifold geometry, identifying ngons or triangles, and highlighting edge flow. This helps in maintaining clean and efficient mesh structures.
- UV Unwrapping: Polyviews offers intuitive and efficient UV unwrapping tools that streamline the process of creating UV maps for texture mapping. Users can easily unwrap and arrange UV islands to optimize the texture application on their models.
- Topology Optimization: With Polyviews, optimizing mesh topology becomes simpler. The addon provides tools to automatically retopologize, clean up, and improve the mesh structure. This feature helps in reducing complexity, improving performance, and ensuring better deformations.
- Transform Tools: Polyviews offers a range of advanced transform tools, such as aligning vertices, relaxing mesh, extruding edges, and more. These tools make it easier to fine-tune and refine the shape and structure of your 3D models.
- Customizable Interface: The addon allows users to customize the interface according to their preferences, which includes rearranging panels, adjusting tool locations, and assigning custom shortcuts. This flexibility enhances workflow efficiency by catering to individual preferences and working styles.
