SculptBrush Smooth Tool

The Smooth brush is one of the most important Sculpting brushes. Often, non-homogenous artefacting results when sculpting (e.g., when using a very fine stencil) due to limited subdivision, as can be seen at the left of the image below:

The Smooth brush – with a low Strength value – is ideal for, relaxing’ the mesh and removing such artefacting.

Due to its importance, the smoothing function can be enabled for any brush by pressing the Shift key during use.

An overview of all available brushes can be found here: Brushes.

Link Size / Link Pressure / Link Symmetry

If one of the first three options is enabled, the value will be applied to all Sculpt brushes (even if you use a preset). Example: You set the Wax brush’s Size value to 15 and you switch to the Erase brush. This brush will also have a Size value of 15 if the Link Size option is enabled.


If this option is enabled you will also be able to sculpt on the back side of a polygon (the cursor color will change to blue). The direction of the brush’s effect will remain unchanged for most brushes (the Pull brush, for example, will still pull in the direction of the surface Normals). The exceptions are the Scrape and Fill brushes.

Keep Visual Size

If this option is enabled, the brush size will change accordingly when the Viewport is zoomed in or out to keep the visual size relative to the screen. If this option is disabled, the brush stroke will always have the same diameter no matter what the Viewport’s zoom factor is.

Preview Mode

Here you can define how the brush preview should be displayed around the cursor:
