Symmetry allows you to paint symmetrically along a given axis using the Paint Brush, Eraser, Flood, and Gradient tools. Simply select a mode, axis, and repetition amount.
Some useful hotkeys to keep in mind when using symmetry mode include:
- Shift + V to toggle between axis
V to toggle between symmetry modes
|Symmetry Enable||Enables painting with symmetry along a given axis.|
|Axis||Choose the axis of the symmetry plane.|
|Mode||Choose between mirror mode, which flips the brush stroke to the other side, or radial mode, which instances the stroke in a circular array.|
|Count||Sets the number of instances for radial symmetry.|
Selecting Custom from the Axis dropdown will provide tools to define an arbitrary symmetry plane.
|Position||Position of the symmetry axis.|
|Rotation||Rotation of the symmetry axis.|
|Align||Engage alignment mode, which allows you to quickly snap the axis of symmetry to an object or geometry face.|
|Align Type||Choose the alignment mode. Object snaps the axis to the center of a mesh, while Geometry allows you to snap to a face, edge, or vertex.|
|Fine Tune||Adjust the axis of symmetry using the transform widget.|
|Reset||Reset the position and direction of the axis of symmetry.|
