Pin Points

Post by rray » 02 Mar 2018, 02:49

A modeling helper plugin which I've been meaning to share in 2009 or so and forgot 8-x

Installs the command "Pin Points" in the Constrain menu on the right. It freezes/pins the selected subcomponents. Then they can't be moved until the command is called again.

There's a displayInfo in the viewport that 1. lets you know something is frozen / 2. lets you set a falloff so points near the freeze region are a little frozen as well which makes the transition smoother / 3. set smoothness / 4. show or hide the blueish effect of the frozen region in the viewport

let me know if there's bugs!

Nice, never planned to have it work it for curves, just for polygons... but because of the generic SI object model it works for anything that's made out of points.
