Zaloopok "Shrink & Grow Edge Loops & Rings Selection" add-on

(DDB) #1

hello

after making this thread in RCS for implementing “Shrink & Grow Edge Loops & Rings Selection”
https://blender.community/c/rightclickselect/zXcbbc/
someone told me there was already an add-on for this in 2015
it was called “zaloopok”
https://www.blendernation.com/2016/06/15/addon-zaloopok/
and it gave blender thoses abilities :

someone know whats up with the status of this add-on ? maybe the dev is famous here ? is it a dead add-on ?
if it is i want to shine a light on his work, maybe someone will want to update it for 2.8

This is a good addon. But the name must be changed. Because it is a disguised obscene word, from russian language :slight_smile:

The name is funny :joy:, i understand russian.Script makes a good job. I got it to work in 2.8, just changed 2.79 to (2, 80, 0) in script file. It works, but shows some errors in console. Would be nice if someone who can code would make clean port.

It would be possible to make a script that use of operators like select “edge rings”, “edge loops” and “checker deselect”, all of them (un)checkable from the F6 menu, with the addition of a quantity bar for this shrink/grow selection addon? Peraphs even adding the ‘select sharp edges’ operator.
We could name it “Edge Final Selector”.

(-Note: if ‘checker delesect’ and ‘edge loops’ are both checked, the former one must run before the latter to avoid funky selection behaviour)

TitusLVR, Thank you!

BD3D, for me the addon works with errors

  1. if Shrink the selection to the last element, and press Shrink again, the last element will remain selected, but this element cannot be Grow.
  2. Shrink Ring removes selection unevenly, removes the selection not only from border but also from the center of the selected

I noticed the same issue as #1 that you commented. #2 hasn’t happened to me yet.

All in all though this is a terrific addon so thank you Titus for porting it! (I swear, like half of my installed add-ons are ones you’ve made or touched, lol)
