Csharpen is the first tool based on the sharpening system and is a a crucial tool in Hard Ops. The idea of Csharpen came about through a need to quickly apply booleans and then sharpen the mesh to keep working forwards.
We could have called it apply and move on but Csharpen sounds better
What does Csharp do that Ssharp doesn’t?¶
- apply modifiers that are not listed otherwise as exceptions in the F6 menu
- set up a bevel modifier on the mesh with a specific profile and segment count
- also it ssharpens the mesh after applying the correct modifiers / basically updating the mesh with accurate bevels via weights
Why does Csharp apply all my modifiers?¶
It only applies certain modifiers. By pressing F6 you have options on what is being applied when Csharpen is ran.
If the modifier is not highlighted in this list it will be applied. It’s as simple as that.
Luckily I also discussed Csharpen in action in the same video as the one where I discussed Csharpen.
Sharpeness - specifies what angles receives sharp, bevel weight(1), crease(1) for the SSharp process.
Autosmooth Angle - specifies what angle the autosmooth receives in the Object Data tab.
Segments - specifies amount of segments the bevel modifier that is added will receive.
Bevel Width Amount - specifies the bevel width of the bevel modifier
