Inflate tool parameters


Modify the size of the brush

Increase or decrease the size of the brush. Very large brush sizes may cause a delay between drawing the stroke and clay being updated.

Toggle Lazy strokeWith Lazy stroke enabled, the stroke is dragged behind the cursor rather than appearing directly beneath it. This helps create smoother strokes and clean curves.
Toggle Steady strokeSteady stroke takes time to catch up with the cursor. Unlike Lazy stroke, Steady stroke will eventually reach the cursor. This helps create smoother strokes and clean curves.
Control the amplitude of Inflate tool strokes

Strength modifies the amount of clay added or removed by the Inflate tool. 

Select whether the Inflate tool adds or removes clayBy default, the Inflate tool adds clay to the surface, but you can also toggle the mode to have the Inflate tool remove clay instead.
