DynaMesh is for More Than Just Sculpting

With DynaMesh you can more easily cut a model into two or more pieces using the new Slice brush combined with the Group option.

Use the Insert Mesh brushes to create intricate parts for 3D printing and when done, use the new Create Shell function to add an internal thickness to your model.

These different operations deliver the ability to create a figure that is ready for 3D printing faster then ever before.
