TopoLogiK is a new Retopology tool for 3dsmax.

It brings a more procedural and parametric approach to retopology in 3dsmax.

Updates :


  • V1.12

    • - Main UI :
      - Faster and more reliable High POLY management.
      - Hide/show edges and material.
      - No locked or corrupted mesh anymore.
      - Shell Value is now saved and reloaded properly with the retopo object.
    • All tools :
      - Shift + Double click : select border edge loop.
      which makes a lot of them way faster to use in most cases.
    • Create Face :
      - CTRL can move verts edges and faces depending on the closest ones.
      - CTRL + SHIFT : Select sub-element collections.
      - CTRL + SHIFT + ALT : Deselect sub-element collections.


      - SHIFT + CTRL + double click : select full edge loop.

      - Better undo on deleted faces
      - Better snap behavior and snap when loop extrude.
      - Ctrl Key : no accidental face creation when Ctrl is pressed.
      - No little quad created at world center in case of face not created.

    • Straighten Brush :
      - SHIFT : Make Circle from selection.
      - SHIFT + ALT : Rotate circle.

This tool looks absolutely unbelievable!
