How to "make planar" multi quad face?

Postby icepenguin » Mon Aug 13, 2018 6:19 am

Hi ThomThom.

I've been used Vertex Tools & SubD for a while. I love it to death though.

But I have a question: how to make multi non-planar quad face into planar quad face? I've tried to "Make Planar" button in Vertex Tools, but when I try "Make Planar" one quad, the other quad become non-planar.

I'm modeling a very big model, and if I can convert all non-planar quad into planar quad, it will make my model lighter.

I think if I have an option that locks vertex, it can be done.

Thank you.

Making all non-planar quads to be planar is very difficult - if not impossible in some scenarios. I'm afraid I don't know of any good techniques for that.

Artisan has this tool if I'm not mistaken.

Not really. Is only a visual thing. Your pc's GPU will still see two triangles.
