thanks, that what I do actually. But I'll have the trouble adjusting the distance, especially when I want to move it farther or nearer.

This is what I expect actually. If only this feature is available in anim8or. At least for future release. I attach the image in the attachment.


Anim8or v1.0 Discussion Forum / [ask] move face in the direction of normal
« on: November 14, 2019, 01:39:59 am »

I'd like to know if I can move a face in the direction of the normal of the face.
I try to move by pressing the middle mouse button and successfully move the face but it also scales it.
This feature is very important for me,

this soft still has some bugs. When exporting to anim8or the vertex order and the normal are sometimes not right. You can fix this with FLIP NORMALS and FIX NORMALS command

collada can be exported from google sketchup

seamless texture generator
will create seamless texture for you

this tool only convert collada file.
you need to convert your sketch to collada first
I already give the example files

if your model have component then you need to explode them all

I'm using winrar because it produces smaller file than ZIP
this converter still have bugs in texture. the bugs will be skewed

Hello all
longtime no coming here since last year :D

Today I would like to introduce a new software that I have just created.

It is a Collada Converter
You can use this tool to convert Google's 3d model into Anim8or.

Google Sketchup allows its model to be exported to Collada format only.
Finding 3d model that can read Collada is very hard.
Therefore I'm interested to create one for my self.

How this tool works:
Convert your model from Sketchup into Collada
Use this tool to convert Collada into An8

Work only for Sketchup 7

Google really protects their model, so they don't give specification
for their format. and They don't like if anyone create a converter for their models. That's why this tool will work only for Sketchup 7 because every version of Sketchup has different format specification.
