i just picked up a version of the Horn Maker and was astonished at how simple it is to make …
then i started thinking of what exactly was going on and i realized that the movement of the empty was just like the movement of a pen on paper only in a 3D world!
this got me thinking and i came up with this:
what if we could implement this script to get the input from a tablet pen and then by pressing the button on the pen and after running the script and moving it across the tablet - wouldn’t blender be able to literally “draw” meshes and shapes instead of having to manipulate vertexes and what not!
it could be further tweaked so that by pressing a hot key such as Y (i don’t think it has a function yet) blender could then go into pen mode where the embedded script would automatically get the pen input and based on perhaps a pop-up menu select the draw type from say vertex, curve, face, or it could also enable multiple vertex extrusion much like blender 2.35 CVS does!
this would be an awsome feature and would definetly give Blender an edge in the CG community!
What do you think about it?
(sad to say i have no experience with python scripting so i’m sorry i actually couldn’t be of more help in the end! )
