Need Testers For Scrape Tool Parameter Change

Recently a user filed a bug report on the scrape tool digging holes instead of scraping. This turned out to be a problem with the default Normal Radius setting being too low.

See the bug report.

I’m thinking of increasing the default value to somewhere between 0.75 and 1.5. Please test and report your thoughts below.

I usually keep my startup file with Normal Radius set to 1, but just tried with 1.5 and it seems to work better :+1:

Yeah, turning up the normal radius does decrease how “wobbly” the brush feels. I’ve always had it at 0.5 and just made the brush really really big when I started having this problem :stuck_out_tongue: 1.0 feels fine to me, it takes into account everything within the range of the cursor, which is what a new user would expect.

The “making holes” behavior seems to be a inherent problem of the scrape brush that Pablo was trying to solve with the new Plane Trim brush (see the video):
