Editing imported models in Carrara

Editing imported models in Carrara

Editing imported models in Carrara

I need to change the position of some points in a 3DMF model I have. I have imported it to Carrara, but I can't seem to figure out how to edit it with the Vertex modeler.

Is there a way to do this and how is it done????

RE: Editing imported models in Carrara

The vertex modeler in Carrara Studio is not the best. If you purchased version 1.1 there is another Eovia program included that you have to install, it is Amapi 5.1. This is the best vertex modeler I have used! Do the tutorial and you will be in there!

RE: Editing imported models in Carrara

Can you actually see the model after importing in the Vertex modeler or does it just show "No Parameters" in the Model room? This would indicate that it is not in vertex format, but in primitve or other format.

While in the Model room, select the Edit menu and select "Convert to other modeler"  (last item in menu). Then Select vertex modeler format.

This will let you access the vertices of the model.
