Blender 2.69: Modeling

Viewport: Hidden Wire

Hidden Line Retopo Example

This draw option can be accessed in mesh Edit mode from the shading panel of the Properties. It is useful for a retopology workflow to show only front-facing wireframes. Optimally this should be combined with the XRay display setting in the Object Data properties.

Note: Hidden Wire is not available while Viewport Shading is set to wireframe.

Mesh Bisect has been added to perform quick cuts, dividing meshes in half, optionally removing one side of the cut and filling in the exposed areas.
