Title: 2 requested scripts
Post by: Darkjesture on September 20, 2008, 10:52:12 pm
I would like a better point snap tool. Would that be posible to write in a script?
And also i would like an md2 mesh export script. Just a suggestion really doesnt even have to be a script.  :)

What exactly do you mean by "a better point snap tool"?

I have trouble snapping points unless i have them litterally on top of each which is kinda problem because a like to to model in the style where you lay each polygon out then you mirror your half and that means i have to work extra hard to line everything up just so that i can take a shortcut and snap a couple of points together.  :)

Ok.... I'm not really sure if I understand...
What should the script do? Move a point to the position of the nearest neighbour and merge them? Or something like "intelligent mirroring" (the script would mirror a mesh and merge the corresponding points automatically)?

I want to be able to take 2 points and join them into one point.

Then you can use the "Merge Points" command (hotkey Shift+L).

I know that you  can do that but it sux to use i want something that will work on the points at a much greater distance.

Simply move the point together or typ in a greater value in the merge point window: default is 0.500, make it 2 or something (depending on the distance of the points). But it's better to move the points closers together and then merge points, especially when working with more points.

Try this to move the point and then the merge function:
