Not space apart base on their pivot point as that would be useless if the meshes are of different sizes, rather space apart based on their outer most bounding boxes [AABB Boundary Test] so that the spaces between them are the same ?
did you try the array modifier ?
It behave like these two icons in Flash’s align tool.
can you elaborate
what is this image ?
is it done in blender or other soft ?
is this a 3D model in blender ?
yes I can elaborate
These are Flat images because it is Flash [2D drawing program], I wish there is something like this in Blender ;p Is there ?
There used to be a Distribute tool in the Oscurart Tools add-on (should be bundled with Blender). I don’t recall whether it had spacing setting, nor can I say how well it works with 2.8x.
It’s something that could be written, albeit with a few caveats, e.g. Blender doesn’t store the order of selection for objects, so it may switch the objects around. Here’s a very simple script that spaces selected object on the X axis with a gap, ordering them by decreasing bounding box size:
import bpy from mathutils import Vector def get_object_size(obj): bb = obj.bound_box v0, v1 = Vector(bb), Vector(bb) mtx = obj.matrix_world v0 = v0 @ mtx v1 = v1 @ mtx return (v1 - v0).length def distribute_with_spacing(objects, gap): if len(objects) < 2: return dims = list(o.dimensions for o in objects) last_loc = Vector((0,0,0)) objects.location = last_loc for i in range(1, len(objects)): da = dims[i-1] db = dims[i] offset = (da.x + db.x) * 0.5 + gap new_loc = last_loc + Vector((offset, 0, 0)) objects[i].location, last_loc = new_loc, new_loc #objects = bpy.context.selected_objects #objects = sorted(bpy.context.selected_objects, key=lambda o: o.name) objects = sorted(bpy.context.selected_objects, key=get_object_size, reverse=True) distribute_with_spacing(objects, 1.0)
are all your object the same shape - identical
also in line like the rectangles shown?
I mean this can be done with simple array in blender
Ricky, how come you never read the original post?
you did not read all the posts too !
first post is
if the meshes are of different sizes,
but other one shows boxes all same size !
so hard to tell what the goal is here !
