I'm still pretty green with Lightwave... I want to model a starship and want to create detail on the hull plating. I've seen a lot of discussion about using Stencil to create patterns in the hull plating.

What is this and how do I apply it to the model...

I saw it mentioned in a tutorial on modeling Serenity, but I am not able to find the "stencil" tool anywhere.

Are there any good video tutorials on how this is used?


:hey:

You'll find Stencil is one of the options in the Drill tool. The Drill tool can be found under the Construct tab in Modeler. Here is a video tutorial about the Drill tool options. https://www.lightwave3d.com/learn/article/modeling-introduction-to-the-drill-tools/ Hope that helps.
