Mind navigation.

Orbit, zoom, pan, etc just with your mind, sounds like science fiction now, but who know with version 12 it may just be science fact.

Dear All,

This is more a modification to an existing tool.

It would be nice to have a multiple copy option for the move too. Click the Ctrl key once and you have the single copy option ('+' sign appears); click the Ctrl key twice and you have the multi-copy option ('++' sign appears). Scroll through the options by clicking the Ctrl key.

I know about the *n and /n options, but these only work between the start and finish point, or along a linear path. I often want to pick up a copy of a component and then drop it in lots of different places in X,Y and Z.

Regards,
Bob

oooh, i think ive got a good one...a tool that allows you to project geometry onto a surface. I was thinking so youd be able to do things like this trellis viewtopic.php?f=79&t=7304 without havign to do lots of boring stuff.

Dear Remus,

Didier Bur has a collection of tools called projection tools which allow one to project geometry on to a plane. In fact, I asked him to update the tool set, which he did, and which can found in the Ruby Depository (second page, Projection Toolbar Update)

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Bob

PS I liked your Glastonbury Tor.

Well, my wish is to have some way to group layers into upper and sub levels. Such that in the layer manger display window, I could have an upper level layer named "xxxx" and inside that layers' level are all the sub level layers that I want to be associated with the upper named layer. In addition, also, to have the option of just showing the upper level layers, or all the sub level layers of each upper level layer.

Hope this makes since.

Yes it does, Ken; some kind of multi-level, collapsible layer system. Just like in Win Eexplorers menu list on the left.

Well, as I remember, Todd is thinking about such a plugin. :thumb:
