MODO Kits

Tabby Cat

Tabby Cat improves the default Tab key behavior in MODO. It's simple, straightforward, and solves a lot of common problems for new and experienced users alike. I use it myself, and I recommend it to all of my students.


Features:

Tabby Cat changes the default Tab key behavior in the following ways:

  1. Catmull-Clark subdivs are used by default.
  2. It always smooths or un-smooths entire polygon islands. (It never creates mixed meshes.)
  3. It works in all component selection modes.
  4. Aligns flipped polys.
  5. Corrects mixed face/subdiv meshes.

Changelog:

v902.0.0 - So fresh and so clean, clean.
