Installation

  • Unzip
  • Move all files to the [blenderhome]/2.57/scripts/addons folder.

Features

  • Blender 2.57
  • Cursor history with back and forward navigation.
  • Cursor trace is shown on screen if chosen to.
  • 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 4-point sphere center.
  • Move cursor to closest point on surface of 3-point sphere.
  • Move cursor to closest point on surface of 4-point sphere.
  • Move cursor to world origin.
  • Move cursor to active object origin.
  • Set step length for limiting or extending the distance the cursor will move.
  • Set step length mode to absolute for an exact distance in blender units. Negative values makes the cursor move away from the target.
  • Set step length mode to proportional for a scaled distance. Values between 0 and 1 is between CL and target. Values greater than 1 overshoots the target. Negative values makes the cursor move away from the target.
  • Capture step length value from distance between two vertices.
  • Quick buttons for Golden Mean proportions.

Release Notes

  • IMPROVEMENT: Control, Memory and History are now separate plugins…
  • IMPROVEMENT: Now works with Blender 2.57.

Issues

  • None.
