Some CAD style tools for easier Archviz modelling in Softimage.


Plugins:-

-Cameras-
Fixed Polygon Cam - create a view perpendicular to an arbitary polygon

-primitives-
Draw and size Cube, Box, Cylinder, Sphere, Cone, etc standard primitives in viewport

-transform tools-
4 point rotate
2 point transform
3 point scale
mirror about 2 points
align objects by 2 polygons
align object - polygon to edge
aligh object to polygon

Limitations: these do not work correctly on enveloped meshes unfortunately.

-measuring property-
Apply to scene root and measure distances - automatically converted to scales like mm, cm.

Sweeet!! Needed something like this in XSI for a long time. Just two things would put this little proggie over the top... 1) Last Distance in Feet and Inches and 2) Distance between two objects.. this last one would be great to have two nulls you could push around and know the distance between them at all times.

Lovely all the same...

Thanks!
