NoodlesTools - FastActions

FastActions can make your life easier by providing easy to access shortcuts to operators that are usually far in some menus, as well as some mesh editing operations that usually requires several operator calls.

The addon requires MagicUV, Looptools and F2 to be enabled :slight_smile:

Edit Mode:

Selections: ALT+R

  • Select/Deselect Boundary Loop
  • Select area in boundary loop
  • Select Above / Below / Side of active vertex
  • Select Edge Rings/Loops
  • Checker Deselect

Geometry: ALT+R

  • Create Domes from vertices
  • Create hole from 2 vertices
  • Other operators are experimental. Use them at your own risk :stuck_out_tongue:

Object Mode:

Transform menu: CTRL+T

  • Apply 3d cursor orientation
  • Apply Scale (This one works for linked objects, even the ones that are not in the viewport.)

Unwrap Menu: U

  • Smart Unwrap all selected objects. Can affect the whole mesh or only the edit mode selection during operator call.
  • Boxt Unwrap all selected objects (Requires MagicUV (Packed with Blender) to be enabled). Can affect the whole mesh or only the edit mode selection during operator call.

Next Features:

  • Mark Seam from Boundary
  • Mark Seam from Region
  • Dome from Face
  • Drill Hole from Faces
  • Apply Rotation (Linked)

Here are quick demos of the features.

Unsubdivide : is not working for me , maybe i use it the wrong way

No, it’s my fault, I’m still working on it and forgot to disable it in the release.
I’m working on another add-on at the same time so I can’t fix it right now, but it will be a really useful feature :slight_smile:

Hi there !
New version of FastActions is available.
Note that the following features are expected to work with tube like objects.

  • Unsubdivide is now actually unsubdividing. It sometimes throws an error if you use it several times a row though.
    Select only an edge from a non cyclic loop. (Can work with several mesh parts as long as they are in the same mesh object)
  • Cylinderify
    Makes your tube-like object cylindrical
    Select only an edge from a cyclic loop. (Can work with several mesh parts as long as they are in the same mesh object)
  • TubeToCurve
    Turns your tube into a chain of vertices
    Select only an edge from a cyclic loop. (Can work with several mesh parts as long as they are in the same mesh object)

Also remade the ALT+R menu:

Hi, is there any possibility to make this work in 2.83+ or is it too much work?

Also in 2.90 I get an error with the drill but not sure if I do something wrong.

RuntimeError: class NDT_OT_drill, function invoke: incompatible return value , , Function.result expected a set, not a NoneType

location: <unknown location>:-1

Thank you.

A fix for Drill will be in next release.
However, concerning compatibility with 2.8x, it’s a bit of work as there has been some changes in the API since 2.90.
I won’t be for next release, as i’d like to do things the smart way to avoid adding myself technical debt.
But it’s doable :slight_smile:

New version available !

  • Fixed some menu
  • Added Modifier Keys event for Select Side panel, allowing to select depending on orientation (global, local, view)
  • Fixed To Dome for 2.8x
  • Fixed Drill for 2.8x
  • Fixed Drill !
