One of the first upgrade features that I asked for when I first opened Cubify Sculpt was the ability to manipulate the clay in the fashion of a Potter's Wheel. Well, it turns out that we can do just that using some hot keys or, I hope, by using a Spaceball type of device. I've been told that the SpaceNavigator device can be used to spin objects with one hand as the other is used to sculpt. But, we don't have to wait until a SpaceNavigator arrives to test the concept.
It turns out that the ARROW KEYS can be used to spin the object a specified number of degrees and by holding down the ARROW KEY we can do so continuously.
Here is a video that shows the concept!
The image used for the video preview is the SpaceNavigator. I have ordered one and should have it by next week. I was under $100 and I am looking forward to seeing how well it works!
The combination of being able to start with an STL, like the chalice, which is VERY easy to create in a CAD program; but, slow to create in a sculpting application and the having the ability to quickly add features while spinning the piece is a VERY powerful capability. The ARROWS and other Hot-Keys are good things to explore.
I love it!
