Vox Hide is All You Need For Hard Surface Design in 3D Coat

Anton Tenitsky Demonstrates How to Work With the Vox Hide Tool for Creating Hard Surface Models in 3D Coat.

Nead a straightforward approach to hard surface modeling in 3D-Coat? Complex shapes and details seem hard to sculpt out, but in reality, all you need is a single tool. That tool is Vox Hide. Anton Tenitsky shows his approach for creating what he calls a model that has some “overcomplicated shapes.”

Vox Hide allows you to paint in the areas on the model that you wish to hide. It’s a great way to create hard edges surface for hard surface designs. The tool also has a few other functions, which you will find in the Voxel menu. Such as invert, unhide, delete hidden, separate hidden, and more.

Watching a model created this way seems like it could be a snap and also allow for iteration and experimentation.

Anton is a mentor at the CG Spectrum College of Digital Art & Animation.
