View Full Version : How to select outside but not inside of a cup?

06 June 2009, 03:57 PM
I want to sculpt the outside of a thin walled cup, but I keep messing up the inside of the cup as well.

I want to mask and/or hide the inside wall's polys but I can't figure out how to isolate them with accidentally selecting polys from the other side of the wall.

It's one mesh, but the wall is a cylindrical solid with an inside and an outside.

this solves it:

brush>backfacemasking (turn on)

can't use Zsub if you're on 3.1 unless you change the setting to a -100 (then you can't use Zadd...but you get the idea.)
