ConstructFaceNormal is a small standalone script which will put a construction line along the normal at the barycenter of each selected face.
Length of the construction line is just the average of the distance of the face contour to its barycenter


ConstructFaceNormal is now installed as part of FredoTools.

See the main post for this plugin for Installation

No user manual (see section Quick Start below)
  • Language: English and French
  • Menus: by default, it is installed in Tools > FredoTools > Construct Face Normal and also appears in the Contextual menu when there is at least one face in the current selection
  • Icon toolbar: Fredo6 Tool. Icon not shown by default
  • The plugin is free, for private and commercial usage.

  • Select one or several faces (edges and other elements will be ignored)
  • Call the Plugin on the selection (main menu or contextual menu “Construct Face Normal”)

Hi, Fredo:
I like the concept. A good standalone "simple" tool. It will make a good companion to Chris Fullmer's Three Lines Tool, which places a normal on edges, among two other functions.
I take the slow, deliberate approach in my aimless wandering.
