Options

top left: original
top right: Mix of Laplacian and HC releaxiation
bottom left: only Laplacian relaxiation
bottom right: only HC relaxiation
Strength
Defines how strong the relaxiation is. The default value is 1.0 which usually gives good results. In some cases you might want to reduce the strength.
HC Factor
Blends between Laplacian (L) and HC relaxiation. While Laplacian tends to lose no volume, HC gives smoother results while loosing a little bit of volume, especially in sharp corner cases. Usually a mix with slight HC relaxiation gives the best results, but it may depend on the use case. The default is 0.0, meaning only Laplacian relaxiation.

Todo

  • Add support for mirror modifier and x-mirror option (center vertices)
