Hi, guys, I was wondering if there already exists an add-on which allows mesh editing along these lines -
you move selected vertices and other group(s) of vertices repeat their movements, but with constraints.
Like, move along X and Y, but not by Z.
I have prepared an animated GIF to demonstrate the idea:
As you can see, while only one of the corners is moved, the box retains its shape.
I though, maybe something like this exists in CAD add-ons for Blender, so I tried to look into CADtools, Caliper, tinyCAD, ProCad, but they either don’t work with current Blender release or don’t do what I want (fix me if I’m wrong here).
If there’s no such tool out there, then I would create it myself (from what I have seen already it shouldn’t be extremely hard), but then I need some help with translate gizmo. Since there are no listeners, I can attach those to the vertices I want to move according to the motion of the selected vertex. Looks like I have to implement a translate gizmo on my own, or to replicate “Grab” (G key) functionality, or do I?
Experienced Blender add-on developers, please advice - what are my options?
