2.8 Boolean Collections Plugin

add-ons

(Ispheria) #1

I made a plugin to more easily and quickly (imo) work with booleans in an organized manner in 2.8 if anyone is interested.

Edit: download link https://pastebin.com/umxZZ34T

If it doesn’t activate properly, try renaming the file to boolean_collections.py

You have to set up the hotkey yourself. Go to Edit, Preferences, Input, 3D View, Object Mode, Object Mode (Global), Add New, chose a key (I use E), type wm.call_menu_pie in the text box. Then a new text box will appear under where you choose the key. In that text box type object.boolean_collections.

That’s looking cool!
Looks very nice for quick bool bashing on the fly.
Love the Collections idea!

I’ll try this soon. Thanks!!

I suggest posting this in the ReleasedScriptsAndThemes subforum as well

I probably would have if I knew that section exists, but I already posted it here and I hate it when people post stuff in multiple sections trying to get as many views as possible. Besides, since this is 2.8 only I think it should be fine just posting it here.

Can someone Mac please help me confirm that this installs and works correctly on Mac? Someone is having trouble with it on Mac and I don’t have one to test it on. I don’t know anyone who has a Mac either.

Suggestion: You should add the download link to your OP.

I put it in the comments of this post a little bit down, but I figured out how to edit in this forum so I edited it in the post

This is great but I’m getting this error when I try to enable it in Preferences->Addons

Whats requirements so I can use plugin? Do I need to activate “Pie menus” add-on, and what is shortcut you are using to activate it? I love the plugin and demo but failed to set it up on my machine.

I’m looking into the issue where it won’t activate for some people. This is my first plug in and Blender is still in beta so I’m not sure if the problem is my code or if it’s because of Blender


(AonoZan) #16

Got it! Works fine now.

P.S. I have seen custom shortcut registration example here.

It might help.

I install ok, but when i activate


(uruburei) #18

Blender windows 64 Beta

What happens when you try to just run the script from the text editor? (Scripting Tab, Text, Open Text Block, Run Script)


(James) #20

The pie menu pops up instantly when ‘run’ is clicked and appears to work, so the problem is something to do with the addons subsystem specifically.


(bobar) #21

Got the same Issue with activating.
Just renamed the script from “blender_2.8_boolean_collections_plugin_by_ispheria.py” to “blender_boolean.py” and now I can activate it.
