Actually TIG's EebyV and the native scale mostly.

Thomthom's AutoSmooth has meant I'm using vertex tools less and less.

Nice chair and making-of video!

Another funny shape (with 14 legs) ;)

Nice jacks. I just realized how long it's been since I've seen jacks or any reference. Do girls still play with thems somewhere in the world? Great lamps too!

For the line view, you have to activate "view -> hidden geometry". Export an image and combine it with a rendered version of your model with an image editor (e.g. gimp). (max. dimension 1600px!)
You can add this image and the model as attachments to your post.

You should run Split Donut on the n-gons. It will give smoother results with less geometry.

You should measure the poly count between the v1 & v2.

I don't use Artisan to sub-d but have noticed that quad based meshes have lower face counts than those with Ngons present.

Obviously the catmull Clark algo doesn't know how to efficiently divide an Ngon. Which creates lots of unnecessary polys and noticeable pinching.

You should also run Quad Face detect poles to see where the pinching will happen and then tackle those.

But I love to follow this thread. One of the gems in a sea 'it won't load' topics.

How cool would it if if Split Donut (or something similar) was integrated into Artisan, and helped figure out the n-gon topology??

I don't know this, can you explain it a little bit, please?

Thank you!

Or directly in SU. I hope that Thomthom changed to Trimble to change all internals to quads and to implement his subdivision from this promising topic...

I often wonder why Artisan shows a nice (more quad-like) mesh in the preview and it is not possible to choose this mesh instead of the triangulated...

Well, the preview mesh uses openGL to render (which supports non-planar quads) and we all know that SketchUp itself does not allow them.

Nice work as usual, cotty! :thumb:

There are because the faces are not Quad Faces...

Having them as Quad Faces reduces pole count to 4.
