What is tThick?
Tthick is one of the modal operators in Hard Ops intended to use a solidify modifier in a modal manner. This tool is intended to behave as an object level extrude.
tThick use case
If the mesh is undefined:
Q >> tThick
Q >> Operations >> tThick
tThick Detailed Usage
When pressing H during a modal the help will be displayed.
When using tThick the following hotkeys apply:
- R - turns on rim for solidify (useful for cases where the mesh needs to only look thick)
- 1 - sets offset to 1. Makes mesh sit on top of itself.
- 2 - sets offset to 0. This pushes the mesh in and out at the same time.
- 3 - opposite of 1. Pushes mesh down itself.
- Ctrl - changes offset manually. Rare usage.
