v1.33 is out! Quick Measure Update: ‘Freeze Selection’ Mode.

6 Likes

I am running version 1.33, but am trying to align the object pivot location / orientation to an edge selection, as others have asked about I think.

I see you have the new option for “object origin to selection”, but it doesn’t appear to actually rotate/align the Pivot Orientation to an edge i have selected. The pivot rotation seems unchaged or not aligned to the edge vector/direction.

It is not called “Align Origin to selection” for this reason, as the intended function is to simply move the origin.
Use Align Origin to Cursor (after you place the cursor with Cursor Fit & Align if you need proper alignment). I suppose I could make a macro out of these…
If you want the entire object to re-align to the selection, and not just the origin, use Unrotator.

v1.34 is out!
Maybe I should rename “Bridge Or Fill” to F3? ;>

I started to make my own addon / operator to do what I mentioned. I’ll see how that goes. I got some base functionality working using code from other addons I made, but we’ll see if this ends up working well enough or not.

But if you decided to add it to yours, that would be great to! No problem if not.

Thank you!

Included in 1.34 ;>
(check release notes)

awesome, thank you! I’ll check it out!

Hello,

just a suggestion for better UI visualization “Align Origin to Cursor”
loc&rot
minimized clicks to 1 =)
maybe even without text “Align”

Thanks ! at the moment that’s what it does (location and rotation) but I would rather have those option separate and maybe you can make a macro that does both together using “pie menu editor” addon.

@Kiellog is it possible to separate those options. I downloaded the latest version and when I click align the center to the selection it also moves the center.

Hi,
what pie menu do you need, make a mock-up or screen from modo, I’ll try to recreate it.

I think you use old version, 1.34 have that options in bottom left menu (called “Adjust Last Operation” menu).

G-B, I’ll look into adding those for Align Origin to Selected. (i think u were referring to this new one?)
Redo will prob not work for this macro…EDIT: No it works, nevermind ;>

APEC, I’ll look into adding those options available in the menu, for both AOTS and AOTC

EDIT: wip: (APEC’s mockup was in the redo-panel, I dont think I have any control over that tho.)

Great addon by the way. I think now we only need a “linear falloff” and a “constrain to background” to make it perfect. :slight_smile:

Yeah, linear falloff with their presets (Linear, Ease-In/Out),
I hate default blender proportional edit and hide all unwanted geometry to not affect on them…
But “constrain to background” not bad in blender, need to understand that it’s possible with a Shrinkwrap modifier only

allright, adding the prop choices to redo-panel. getting too cluttered in the menu anyways ;>

That’s true but it takes too long to setup, maybe they will add it in the retopology tools.

by the way I use the EZLattice addon as a basic linear falloff, it’s not the same but it does the job.

For me it looks better, even like this.
Maybe it possible to use row instead of col.

no, i could not fit any decent amount of text in row.(using the split command, i dont want to make custom entries for every option) + I prefer not to use abbreviations in these cases.

Then just leave it like there

for me it more convenient. Or as you see fit to display it

That seems fine to me. :smiley: Cool! Thank you
I don’t always have the side bar/tab visible either, so that makes it more accessible.

Or like someone said, if can steal those and put into a pie with pie menu editor, then it’s not a big deal at all / user can do whatever they want then.
