Elastic Deform

Reference

Mode:

Sculpt Mode

Tool:

Toolbar ‣ Elastic Deform

Used to simulate realistic deformations such as grabbing or twisting of Elastic objects. For example, this tool works great for modeling the shape of organic objects such as humans or animals. When pressing Ctrl, the brush deforms vertices along the normal of the active vertex.

Brush Settings

General

More info at General brush settings and on Advanced brush settings.

Unique

Deformation

The surface alteration that is used in the brush.

Grab:

Used to drag a group of vertices around.

Bi-scale Grab:

Like Grab but the falloff is more localized to the center of the brush.

Tri-scale Grab:

Like Bi-scale Grab but the falloff is more localized to the center of the brush.

Scale:

Displaces vertices away from the active vertex.

Twist:

Vertices are rotated around the active vertex.

Volume Preservation

Higher values preserve volumes more, but also lead to more bulging. (This value determines the poisson ratio for elastic deformation)
