Reature request, update Screw, Spin, Spin Dup

Post by madcello »

My simple feature request is:

Accept positive and negative degrees, and accept float values.

I miss both of them almost every time i use this tools.

There's Clockwise toggle button in Screw\Spin\SpinDup controls for that.

I think you made good points. It's probably just a change of button type.

I made a patch to allow negative values in Degrees. You can find it at http://bebraw.googlepages.com/negadeg.txt. I tried to change the type to float but it seems it requires some change to DNA.

I updated the patch to work with floats in degrees. Have fun!

Nice job! it works well...

If I may make a suggestion...you should probably get rid of the clockwise button with your patch. If you set degrees to a negative value, and deselect the clockwise button, it spins in a positive direction again...it may be confusing to users to have both :wink:

paprmh: Thanks for comments! I did try to remove Clockwise button but it seems it is related to Screw tool. It basically sets the direction in which the screw is created.

That is a valid point though. Let's see if we can figure out a better solution for this. :)

Thank you alot.

Blender is growing very fast with lots of new tools, but i think that some of the "old" tools, with some care, can make wonderfull things. Thank you again!
