Sketch Planes

Hello evrybody,


I'm an Alias modeler,  i was waiting since long time since when i saw Ilovessketch and you made it !   i didn't try  for the moment but i would say thanks you .


for sure i will buy it in the futur, and keep the simplicity of drawing experience improve sketch planes like the first incredible video of "ilovesketch"


it's possible to change the position of the symetrie plane like in Alias Studio ?


Kind Regards

Hi Julien,


You can change the position of the sketch plane, however when it comes to the symmetry plane, we currently don't have the ability to move the axis of symmetry-- currently mirroring and symmetry are over the Cartesian Axes. However we have had it requested to be able to move the symmetry planes, and our belief is that everything is possible. It is on our feature request list, so we will probably integrate this feature in the future. 


I hope that helps answer your question. We can't wait for you to give uMake a try! 

Hello and thank you for your answer, I have another question , once the line Is draw on a sketch plane and edited curve by adding points , it is possible to change the shape of this line by the drawing ? a kind of editing with sketching . Regards

Julien, 


Yes, in the future these kinds of curves will be possible. They currently are if you edit the control points (which gives you a lot of power, and also with the reshape tool. In the future when we have more constraint tools for moving control points or creating curves, this will be possible. But, this kind of curve is already possible currently with just a few seconds of editing a curves control points. Hopefully that answers your question. 

Please ,


more Sketching experience


less editing like Rhino or Alias. umake is an other 3d software ! or is a 3d Sketch Soft

cultivate your uniqueness

in this tuto i see only editing i don't want to learn Umake if is begining to be the same as other

Julien, 

 

Thanks for your feedback!

 

Have you tried out the freestyle sketching tool in uMake? 

 

Together with sketch planes it is very powerful and will allow you to sketch your ideas out in 3D very quickly. The curves you create in that method are not Nurbs Curves and thus are not editable, but it is much more of a sketching experience. 

The editing like Rhino/ Alias/ other softs is more of a preference than a necessity. uMake lets you sketch in 3D, but also lets you then edit your sketch to achieve your goal. 
I would find it hard to compare uMake to being another 3D software because touch interface gives you a truly unique way of interacting with your sketch compared to the other software. I had a Wacom Cintiq at my old job and even with that, using Rhino or Alias was not at all the same as using uMake. 

In the Eames Lounge Chair video, I did heavily use the editing feature-- but that is because I was doing more of a precise illustration  than an ideation sketch-- I was re-creating an existing object versus exploring an idea. 

I'd encourage you to take a look at one of our more recent tutorials to check out our freestyle sketch feature so you can see how that is truly 3D sketching. 

 

Each project is different and has different workflows... In the 2D realm, you choose your software depending on what you will do-- if you are to do a precision illustration you would go with a more vector based program like Illustrator-- if you were to loosely sketch you would go with SketchBook. uMake lets you do both in a sense... only in 3D space. 3D sketching is at our core, and you can do a lot with the tools we have right now. We are continuously adding new tools and features to uMake to make it easier and more intuitive as well, so all feedback is welcome. Thanks again for sharing! 

 

I hope the following videos help show the freestyle Sketching method.

In the first 30 seconds you can see how I used freestyle sketching to outline the vehicle below. Then I moved over to drawing and editing with NURBS curves for more precision, but the initial sketching was very helpful and quick.
