Is there a way in Modeler to use a Magnet Tool, with radial falloff, but then instead of pulling points linearly, I want to spin them around the central Y axis?

Kinda like I have half a vase, and now I want to pull the edges to be more organic, but stay circular.

What's wrong with the twist tool?

donīt think so...not sure exact what you looking for, but why do you not use the magnet tool to pull out what you need, with radial falloff selection, then switch to the twist tool and with radial falloff?

There are also options to use texture falloffs within the magnet tool, in lw 2015, but I do not think you can do that twist in that way.
There are also ways of using weightmaps on the area or spray weight with airbrush tool, then use magnet, move tool with weigth falloff..and select that map created, then twist it with the same weight map falloff.

do you have a sample of the form you want to create..reference photo?

The thing that was wrong with the Twist tool was that I failed to notice you can change the falloff to radial. Thanks.
