Still not sure it is what you want? Read a quick review of sPatch by Marjorie Graterol. Or are you looking for something like sPatch but with more features? Try the free modeler hamaPatch, or English Mirror. Clip-Shapes
Clip shapes are those predefined objects/shapes that appear when you choose one from the menu under "Model" -- "Insert". You can make and install your own clip shape by creating a new model and saving it without an extension (.spt) and placing it in the directory "Clip Shapes" under the sPatch program directory. The following files are add on clip shapes to be installed in the same manner:
Circles 3, 5, 6, 10, 12, 16 point circles. Created by Clifton Odenwalt. Complexed Sphere The default sphere has been reported to export as a cube in .x format (Direct X). This complex sphere is supposed to fix this problem. Also useful if you just want a sphere with many more points than the default. Created by Clifton Odenwalt. Head Hamakazu's head outline. Place in Layer 1 and extrude head splines around the outline. Star Hamakazu's star clip shape from early versions of hamaPatch. Triangles 3, 4, 6 point triangles. Plug-ins
Plug-ins are files ending in ".exp". Access a plug-in via "File -- Export" . Place a plug-in file into the directory "Export Plugins" under the sPatch program directory. The following should be installed and accessed in this manner:
