Dimensions 0.0.0 (test of concept)

Posted in Addon, Blender 2.54b, Dimensions, Experimental on September 17, 2010 by seminumerical

Audience

    This addon lets you add dimension objects to measure distances in real time. May be helpful in simple CAD drawings of mechanics or architecture. Feel free to try it for yourself.
    Warning This is an test of a concept but it may still be somewhat useful.

    Enjoy!

Features

  • Blender 2.54b
  • Add as many dimension objects as you like
  • Move them to where you want
  • Start and endpoint can be attached to different objects and follow when you move, scale and rotate.
  • Shows the distance in BU (blender units)
  • Keep your scene neat and tidy by putting them in a separate layer. Also works with hide/unhide.

Release Notes

    This is an experiment. So there is lots of stuff that is a bit flaky.

Issues

    Dito.

Cursor Control 0.3.0

Posted in Addon, Blender 2.54b, Cursor Control on September 15, 2010 by seminumerical

Obsolete

Audience

    This addon gives you fingertip control of the 3d cursor. May be helpful in simple CAD drawings of mechanics or architecture. Feel free to try it for yourself.

Features

  • Blender 2.54b
  • Store cursor location to a saved location (SL)
  • Move cursor to SL
  • Swap cursor and SL
  • Saved Location is shown on the screen if chosen to.
  • Move cursor to closest point on selected mesh elements: vertices, edges, lines, faces, planes. Edges are constrained by their vertices, and faces by their edges. Lines and planes are infinite.
  • Mirror cursor around SL, a vertex, a line or a plane
  • Move cursor to median of selected vertices.
  • Move cursor to closest encounter of two lines. Alternates between the two possible solutions.
  • Move cursor to closest point on 3-point cylinder axis. (Also for 3-point circle center)
  • Move cursor to closest point on surface of 3-point sphere. (Also for 3-point circle circumference)
  • Move cursor to world origin
  • Move cursor to active object origin

Release Notes

  • BUGFIX: Move to closest point on face now works properly on quad faces.
  • NEW: Move to closest point of surface of 3-point sphere.
  • IMPROVEMENT: Changed ‘3-point circle center’ to the more generic ‘closest point on cylinder axis’
  • IMPROVEMENT: Move to line-line intersection now alternates between the two solutions. This keeps SL intact.
  • IMPROVEMENT: Changed some icons to something more logical… hopefully.

Issues

  • None.

  • Swap cursor and SL
  • Saved Location is shown on the screen if chosen to.

Release Notes

  • Updated to Blender 2.54b API

Issues

  • Move to face does not work as intended on quad faces.
