2.46rc1 - Transform Snap


does anyone know how to use the new Transform Snap tools in 2.46rc1? I am most interested in the rotation/scale snapping capabilities. I have read here some info: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Release_Notes/Notes246/Transform_Tools, however, it does not seem to work (“Active” snapping does not snap to the selected edges/vertices).

Thanks for your help,


Another Video by iaminnocent from the thread on transform orientation I mentioned in your other post.
Aligning faces

Thank you very much robbur.

Anyone following this thread: the “Custome Space” tool seen in the referenced video is part of the patch: http://blenderartists.org/~theeth/bf/transformspace.patch

In 2.46rc1, it is called “Custom Orientation”, and can be invoked with “Ctrl-Shift-C”. If 2 vertices or an edge is selected, it displays “Add and Use Edge”, if 2 edges or 3 vertices or a face is selected, it displays “Add and Use Face”, and allows you to create a named custom orientation.


Where is the version 2.46rc1 to be found?

Thank you JiriH,

So it looks like the “Blender 2.45 15 RINKI” panel IS in reality version’s 2.46 (I’m quite confused about that)… It is REALLY the same thing… right?
