Align objects by faces

Nice work man, very very usefull script saves many clicks over object, i hope that this will be implemented in next revision in Blender.

hello i try the add ons in blender 2.68.1

but not appear in search this is a bug?

Like some post above you need to select the two objects first.

ok, I can do this with Torque and force over time now in the game engine

:smiley:

this aligns to a objects center, and facing, it could easily be made to align a face normal to a face normal with a little bit of math

Looks awesome! I just installed it.
(I too was not thrilled with having to make an empty when using Precise Align.)

Question:
If assigning a custom keyboard shortcut what is the python name to bind?

Thanks

Thanks for the very useful addon.

One thing that would nice to have would be to align an edge in each object after the the faces are aligned.

To an extent you can do this with the built in snap functionality.
Set the Snap Element to Edge.
But perhaps you mean the ability to snap one specific edge to another specific edge (both within a single object and also object to object)
In which case I agree, that would be convenient.

Quantum Anomaly - yes, I meant snap one specific edge to another specific edge after the faces have been aligned. That would be easier than the snapping workaround now possible.

…thx, i use it a lot…

This works like magic! I love it, thank you so much.

Nice addon^^
We were developing 3DMATCH tool for such things

Are the 1D_script tool officially released ?

Thank you very much

Thanks! Installed and added it to my pie menus, which mean I include it in my workflow.

How can i add this to a pie menu or hotkey?

Oh, I use Pie Menu Editor, which is another blender addon (paid).

Ok, i have that too. But i have no idea, how i can add the script to a pie menu. Can you tell me how i can do that?

Pie Menu Editor has a few ways to add almost any Blender feature to a custom menu or pie. One of those ways is to simply right click on the button that that contains the feature you like and choose “Pie Menu Editor” > choose which menu to assign it to. Pretty simple. I don’t have time to explain in more detail at the moment, sorry. :slight_smile: If you can’t manage it, ask in the PME thread


The developer and other users are very helpful.

Does anyone have a version working on 2.90 of this addon?
Mesh Align Plus is not working at all.

@Acrivec Mesh Align Plus should work just fine now for 2.9: https://github.com/egtwobits/mesh_mesh_align_plus/releases
