Is there any easy way to make a group of ponits lie in teh same plane as 3 other points? I would be interested in coding a patch or plugin if not. It seems like a pretty common thing to do. I’m kind of new to 3d modeling so any help is appreciated.
First off, welcom to Blender and Elysiun!
To align verticies select the points and hit S to scale, then hit X, Y, or Z depending on the axis you want to scale along.
So if you are in front view, and you want a vertical column of verticies, press S, then X (to scale on the X-axis), hold Ctrl (to scale in even incraments), bring the mouse in until the X in the axis’ values read 0, and click.
Thanks for the tip, I hadn’t thought of using scale. However, this would only work if three of my points were on the x, y or z axes, whcih they are not. I guess this is be a good way to learn Blender’s Python scripting language. …
