hi, this addon came with blender 2.79 release. It seems the version you have updated predates the version in blender. I’m wanting to fix the auto mirror in blender so I’ve made a hybrid of your addon and the one in blender. I’ve also added in the ability to change the tab name. Thanks, could you check this is right and let me klnow and I will restore it for blender 2.8 release. mesh_auto_mirror.py (11.5 KB)
2019-03-30 Blender 2.8 confirmed that it has been revived as an official build-in add-on.
This add-on works.
With the official support for Auto Mirror, it is probably better to use this add-on from now on.
I think that updates by me will probably not be done anymore.
This is because we believe that the current level of completion is sufficient.
Also, for some reason the add-on can not be used, and if I get in trouble without anyone updating, I might update it.
Combines the functionality of the “Mirror Mirror Tool” addon, which is a Blender 2.79 addon.
Mirror another object to an axis.
First select the objects you want to mirror,
Second select the objects you want to be axis and then execute.
Set up a regular mirror if there is only one selected object.
Well I think mirroring only part of the object is a bit out of scope for my add-on. I can add a mirror for the whole object but with a different origin than the current one (for instance, and edge), but mirroring a part of the geometry alone add much more complexity. And it could be done manually (without hacky things like empties ^^) by duplicating the object geometry, and mirroring it apart from the model, and joining it then.
Ah ok. No problem. Maybe I will try to make something myself , or try to.
But rotation Matrices and that math can be confusing. I made a tool that does it in 3dsmax , but was “easy” because I just align their working pivot to the edge transform that I built. using edge as vector and world Z/Up and cross product for rotation. Then basically yes. Dupe the faces. Detach and mirror and re-Attach.
Mirroring through the selection of a face is a very good idea. Wings 3D has such a command and it is very useful indeed. But… you say that you made such an operator… is it in a modified version of the add-on here? And if it is so, where can someone download it?
Hey man, any chance you could improve included Mirror Mirror Tool so it takes all selected objects into account, not just last 2 (last selected becomes mirror object and mirror modifier gets added to all previous objects in selection)?
