Blender 2.91: Sculpting

Sculpting Workflow with multiple objects

  • XYZ symmetry is now a per mesh settings which is shared between all painting and editing modes. 5502517c3c
  • Fade Inactive Geometry Overlay that fades with the background color objects that are not editable in the current mode. This makes possible to identify which object is enabled for sculpting. ea6cd1c8f0


  • The HDRI rotation can be locked to the view in LookDev mode to use EEVEE materials as Matcaps 5855f317a7
  • Sculpt Mode can now renders its overlays (Face Sets and Masks) in objects with constructive modifiers enabled. 6c9ec1c893

Sculpt Gestures

New gesture tools to manipulate different data in the sculpt mesh.

  • Box and Lasso Face Set create a new Face Set in the area affected by the gesture c05715b03f.
  • Box and Lasso Trim cut the mesh using a boolean operation 675c964442.
  • Box mask its now its own operator, separated from selection 6faa765af8.
  • Sculpt: Line Project Gesture tool e0bfd3968c.
  • Sculpt: Line gestures and Mask Line tool 8c81b3fb8b.
  • Sculpt: Union and Join mode for trim tools 2b72860ff4.
  • Sculpt: Use cursor depth in trimming gestures da7ace00d5.

Cloth Sculpting

  • The Cloth Brush and Filter now support collisions with scene colliders 675700d948.
  • Cloth Brush applies gravity in the entire simulated area 54a2fcc0f3.
  • Sculpt: Cloth Brush Soft Body Plasticity property ec9edd36ca.
  • Sculpt: Enable persistent base for the cloth brush 49c1359b55.
  • New Cloth Grab Brush that uses constraints 2e33c5ca15.
  • New Cloth Snake Hook Brush 2e33c5ca15.

  • Sculpt: Add orientation modes to the Cloth Filter b3bd121dd4.
  • Sculpt: Scale Cloth Filter 5d728d38b9.



Boundary Brush

This brush includes a set of deformation modes designed to deform and control the shape of the mesh boundaries, which are really hard to do with regular sculpt brushes (and even in edit mode). This is useful for creating cloth assets and hard surface base meshes. ed9c0464ba.

The boundary brush supports different modes to apply the falloff which can be used to create repeating trim patterns c77bf95221.

Multires Displacement Eraser

  • This brush deletes the displacement of the Multires Modifier and moves the vertices towards the base mesh limit surface. 478ea4c898.

Sculpt Filters

  • Sculpt: Sharpen Mesh Filter curvature smoothing and intensify details 3570173d0f.
  • Sculpt: Sculpt Filter Orientation Options 89a374cd96.
  • Sculpt: Enhance Details Mesh Filter 0957189d4a.
  • Sculpt: Erase Displacement Mesh Filter bedd6f90ca.

Other Tools

  • Sculpt: Add global automasking settings support in filters 6fe3521481.
  • Sculpt: Invert Smooth to Enhance Details 3e5431fdf4.
