Snap modelling on top of a surface

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

Hope everyone reading this is doing well - just a quick question regarding a modelling technique that I've noticed in a Maya tutorial, I will drop a link at the bottom. I'm talking about 5:13 specifically, where we can see the modeller creating points and polygons that are snapped to the top of another object's surface as a separate object - how can this be achieved in C4D? Does it have anything to do with the Polygon Pen or Surface Deformer? 

 

Thanks for your time.

HI

 

This is called Retopology, and is done with C4D Polygon pen tool.  Here is a video I did on this.
