PointSplit script testing
« on: March 30, 2009, 03:43:57 am »

More than a year ago,I worked on a split point or unweld point script.
At the time,I couldn't finish it because of ASL limitations.See this post:

http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=121.msg629#msg629

Since,then Steve added the needed function,but I had lost the script
after a computer crash.(only one without back-up)
Finally,I decided to give it another try.

Not the most useful script,but still helpful in special cases,I think.

Would be nice if you could give it a try.Comments are welcome
especially about the new point locations.
I chose the actual one,because during testing it was easy to see the
result and also because it was easy to select the point when modelling.
Maybe,not moving it at all would be better.I'm not sure.

 * The PointSplit script allows you to split or if you prefer,unweld
 * a point.
 * If you have multiple faces sharing a point,select the point and
 * the faces you want to detach by spliting or unwelding the
 * point.
 * Run the script.
 * For each face,the new point will be moved at the center of 
 * the selected  point and the 2 two adjacent points of the face.
 *
 * The operation can be performed on multiple points and also
 * multiple meshes simultaneously.
 * If you select 2 points sharing the same edge,the result may
 * vary depending on the order the points are processed.

Thanks.

Works pretty good!

Only thing is, when I select more than one point for a face, I get an edge that doesn't belong. Result varies with the number of points and/or faces selected.

By the way, it's good that it's separate, but how about less distance from its origination?

Hi Raxx

I think I solved the left over edge problem.Good catch.

I reduced the distance and if you open the script in an editor you can adjust the distance from 0 to the middle of the 2 adjacent points.
