[Plugin] Soften/Unsoften

[Plugin] Soften/Unsoften

Postby CadFather » Thu Oct 23, 2008 10:15 am

is it possible to define an action (by icon or shortcut key) which unsoftens a selection in one go without having to go to smooth/soften and move the slider all the way down?

and is the reverse (one click soften)?

SOLVED - PLUGIN CREATED BY MATT

PLEASE USE THIS LINK FOR THE MOST RECENT VERSION

[file contains script and folder with icons - drop both into the plugins directory]

THANKS GUYS!!! :berserk:

Pixero for a new interesting plugin

Matt for a genius 'back to the future plugin' - works just great even for groups and all!
(and it's much easier for quick smooth/unsmooth)

will see if i can create a toolbar to the commands..

small update for whoever likes this idea:

tweaked Matt's plugin so i get 2 icons (if you ever needed) enable in view > toolbars > soften
(i removed menus in plugins)

now it is a quick step!

Thanks Matt! :thumb:

Hi CadFather !
I updated the code, with another tool. It softens edges whose angle normal faces is below 20 degrees.
So now you've got three tools :
    Mildly Soft edges
    Completely Soft edges
    Unsoft edges

You forgot a bit of code at the end...
Code: Select all
if (not file_loaded?("Soften.rb"))
Now the tool will be loaded just one time !

and the code is also changed following the RickW notices (I hope ;) )

Good luck for the next icon :D

EDIT : Version 1.1

Dear Matthieu,

I have downloaded and installed the plugin. When I open SU I find a toolbar but no Icons. Is this an oversight?

Kind regards,
Bob

Dear CadFather,

Many thanks for that. As an aside, are you Italian? I ask because I spent a very happy year at the University of Trento.

Kind regards,
Bob

Dear Matthieu and Cadfather,

I am a little confused about what to download. I have the icons showing, but nothing works. The last thing I downloaded and tried is the very last .zip file posted by Cadfather.

Regards,
Bob

Does anybody know of a plugin that allows me to soften multiple grouped objects? I have a lot of 3DS models that i import that need to be smoothed and cleaned up, but I have to open each group and soften them individually, which is quite painstaking. Any Suggestions?
