Skin Tool is a useful tool to fine-tune the skin of shapes. And then, it also have diagnostic and repair functions of the skin.
The main features are as follows

  • when Vertex Blending, it edit the Weight values by the actual degree of deformation(called Actual Degree), insted of the real Weight. And, it change does not change the Actual Degree of the other joints.
  • It can display the table sorted by location of the vertecis. So you can edit while compared with nearby vertecis.
  • It can also place selected vertices before.
  • It has diagnosis and repair features, and also has covertion feature from the Classic skin Type to Vertex Blending.



1. How to install

When Windows environment you launch the Shade 3D, after copying the skin_tool.dll(skin_tool64.dll for 64bit version) to My Documents\Shade name\pluings folder.

My Documents: the folder of the user's My Documents 

If the Mac environment, you launch the Shade 3D, after coping the skin_tool.shdplugin to Documents/Shade name/pluings folder.

Documents: a folder of name of Documents in the user of the Finder

Shade name: a folder name, including up to Shade of the version, it will be created automatically at start up of Shade.

If you find a menu of Skin Tool in the View menu, the installation is successful.


When you click this Skin Tool, following compact window and then Shade's Skin Window will appear.



Actual Degree at the joint moved are sum of the joint of his own Weight and all of Weights of their children. By in such representation, beginning from the Actual Degree of the most parent of joint is 1, it went decreased Actual Degree for each of its children, only the Weight of the last joint is same as the Actual Degree. This specification is smart for skin definition, but it is no easy to get the Acual Degree. So I designed a tool that edit Weight By the Acutual Degree.
