Sketch N' Carve Ultimate Bundle: Appetite For Construction

by Sahin Ersoz in Addons


What is the difference between Grease Pencil From Mesh add-on and Blender's "Line Art" modifier?

Line Art modifier is view dependent and generates lines only on the faces that are facing the camera. GP From Mesh is more like the Blender's convert tool, with the difference of being able to filter for sharp edges and intersections.

How are materials applied? Do you still need to make uv maps?

Materials are applied automatically with random colors. Main purpose of the materials is to make geometry selections easier (using the "select" button below the materials panel in edit mode), particularly after some complex and overlapping boolean operations. However you still need to make UV maps, SketchNCarve is only a modeling tool so far.

What is the purpose of "Snc_Enable_Disable" file that came with the add-on? Do i need it?

it is not necessary to install it if you do not need to disable the add-on. "SnC_Enable_Disable" is like a switch to turn on and off "Sketch N' Carve" without having to uninstall it. Its purpose is to release the keyboard shortcuts if they are needed for another function.
Once installed, you can find it under the menu: Object/SNC_Enable_Disable

Can I change the keyboard shortcut key?

Although "K" is assigned for "Sketch_N_Carve", you can change it to something else you prefer.
SketchNCarve is found under "Object" menu in Object Mode, and under "Draw" menu in Draw Mode.
Right click on the name and select "Remove Shortcut".

installA

Right click on the name again and select "Assign Shortcut".

installB

Choose a letter available (single letter is best) and type it.
Under Edit menu, open "Preferences" menu and save your preferences (if it is not set to Auto Save). You are good to go!

I am using translated version of Blender and I am gettin error messages.

Blender is translating add-on generated commands also, which causes errors. Please turn off "New Data" option found under Preferences/Interface/Translation.
