The Mesh Sharpen tool sharpens the geometry based on the curvature found on the mesh. It does so by pushing the points on the mesh towards the higher curvature regions, therefore “sharpening” those regions. During this process, some of the volume of the geometry might be lost, but this can be somewhat restored using the smoothing parameters, while keeping the sharpness.
Number of smoothing iterations.
Size of smoothing steps to take at each iteration.
Use OpenCL for the smoothing. Turning this off might make the processing a little slower, but will use VEX instead.
Controls the method used to calculate curvature.
Make Scale Independent
Ensures the calculated curvature is mesh scale independent.
Allows you to tweak the exponent that is applied to the curvature. Higher value means higher curvature regions get priority over other regions when sharpening.
