ReverseOrientFaces is a standalone script which allow to interactively revert and orientate face sides.
  1. It works across the boundaries of components and groups. You don’t need to open groups and components to paint their faces or edges.
  2. Click and Click and Drag mode to reverse or orient progressively face by face, or surface by surface and to extend a surface already painted
  3. Explicit selections of faces: single face, surfaces, connected faces, adjacent faces with same materials.
  4. Correct handling of texture inversion
  5. The tool automatically switch to Monochrome mode in order to show the front and back faces.

ReverseOrientFaces is installed as part of FredoTools.. It requires LibFredo6 4.4 or above.

See the main post for this plugin for Installation of FredoTools

You have two buttons to toggle between Monochrome and Textured view modes, and to toggle visibility of hidden edges.

Revert Face mode
  • Choose the Face selection mode in the button palette (use the arrow to cycle through the modes)
  • Click to Reverse
  • Click and Drag to reverse adjacent faces

Orient Face Mode

@vicspa: by default, you just have one icon visible (the FredoTools Quick Launcher).
If you wish to get the icons for the tools visible, just goto the Default Parameters box of FredoTools and select the one you want.
This is explained in more detail in the main post of FredoTools.

Why not a selection non adjacent ?
(click a reversed face and all reversed faces are selected even they are not adjacent! )

Fredo I seriously believe you're tough enough to develop your own Sketchup full of blackjack and
hookers !
