Sculpted prim

Introduction

A Sculpted Prim, or “sculptie”, is a prim whose shape is determined by an array of x, y, z coordinates stored as RGB values in an image file (a Sculpt Texture or Sculpt Map). Sculpted prims can be used to create more complex, organic shapes that are not possible with ordinary prims. Each piece of fruit to the right is one prim (and so is the plate). For technical details, see Sculpted Prims: Technical Explanation.

An informal introduction to Sculpted Prims

Here is a video about the most important things you should know about Sculpted Prims. The video is made with Blender, but it focusses on the principles of Sculpted Prims, and thus it is completely independent of any 3D-tool.

How do I make Sculpted Prims

Presently, there are no tools inside Mobius Grid for creating sculpties. They are created externally using a 3D modeling tool such as Blender, Maya, or Wings 3D, and then uploaded to Mobius Grid, where they are applied to a prim with the build tools.
