First of all, this tool is just awesome, cant wait for Meshmachine to make a debut on 2.8…Now the dumb question, I cant find the materials nor the world or anything to append in any folder…I might missed something somewhere…Can you point me in the right direction please!!!


(Mystical) #126

I agree, Meshmachine for 2.8 is going to be awesome. Its my most anticipated port for a 2.8 add-on for sure.


(MACHIN3) #127

I’m not sure I understand. Can you clarify your question? Pick the path to any blend that holds materials or a world you want to append.


(freakmean16) #128

You use a red, chrome, metallic material and some world to preview the model, I dont know if thats something you share in the addon, or some external settings you made outside!!! That??


(MACHIN3) #129

It’s not shared in the addon. In the intro video I show how to point MACHIN3tools to a blend file, where I store materials and a world. Point it to your own to append your own premade materials and world.


(freakmean16) #130

Yeah, I thought so…As I said above…dumb question!!! Thanks for the reply!!!

Hey, I’m having some issues with addon instalation in recent blender 2.8 versions


(Nitram_2000) #132

I just started using this addon last night and I already can’t imagine not using it.

A bug to report, or maybe my lack of understanding, but in the Viewport pie menu (PageDn), when I change the camera focal length, it doesn’t change anything. The camera in the scene is different.

Oops, I just realised that it’s the viewport camera angle. Would it be possible to add the option to change the active camera’s focal length?


(MACHIN3) #133

Constant Blender API changes are constantly breaking things. Will be fixed in the next update, thanks for reporting it.

Great idea, I’ll make the lens angle and the ortho perspective/button change camera props, when the view is aligned to a cam!


(Nitram_2000) #134

Thanks. Just be aware, that some users (me, for example, lol) also use the Photographer Addon so I’m not sure if this will affect your update, or if they’ll conflict in some way.

Machine3,

maybe to add origin to selected in edit mode :slight_smile:


(Mospheric) #137

I would love a “origin to selection” option. One of my favorite scripts for 3ds Max was a pivot to selection where it would just place the pivot in the center of whatever selection I had (whether one object selected or various subobjects)


(radi0n) #138

YES! “origin to selection” ! Please MACHIN3!
And also object origin to bounding box(top, bottom ect…). This option is very usefull for me when i creating stuff for KitOps.


(MACHIN3) #139

Thanks for the suggestions, I agree, these are useful.


(radi0n) #140

Also it would be nice if You put option to reset the location / rotation of 3D Cursor.
I love all Your pie menus (and theme) but for Cursor pie menu i use power_snapping_pies addon.
