Transform tools

Rotate

Reference rotation

3-point rotation. Angle snap option.

QLrotate

Local rotation

2-point CAD-like rotation. Angle snap option, local XYZ axis direction option.

QLrotate

Move & Align

Move node to a new destination and perform an 1D alignment.

scale

Reference Scale

4-point scale. Orthogonal reference pick mode. Additionally it can apply a Xform modifier instead of direct transformation.

scaleDim

reDimension

Unit-measured scale. Orthogonal reference pick mode.

Qoffset

Offset

Precise referential movements.

Maround

Move around

Move / Rotate / Clone an object around a reference center object.

Measure tools

sdivide

Subdivide distance

Sets reference points between two picked points. Move mouse or type quantity to set segments amount.

Qmeasure

Distance

Live visual feedback measure tape. Orthogonal constraint and orthogonal reference modes. Continuos mode displays concatenated dimensions.

Qangle

Angle

Measure any angle by 3 points.

Qarea_icon

Polygonal area

Pick points to draw an a closed polygonal region and measure its area.

Qvolume

Volume

Pick two diagonal points representing an enclosing box and measure its volume.

Pivot, coordinates tools

qpivot

Pivot positioning

Top, bottom, center, cage align, 3-point align, face normal, reset (3-points and face normal has a Working pivot option) in an organized pop-up dialog.

bulb

Reference Isolate

Isolate object and set an active grid with it's local coordinates.

Utilities

REPLICATOR

Replicator

Replace any object with another. Replicate multiple instances, keep or not material and transformations.

MULTI

Eyedropper

Copy almost any property from one object to another. I.E: Match the radius of a circle with the length of a rectangle, render properties, layer or anything else.

IARRAY

Interactive Array

Fast, interactive, in-viewport 2.5D Array.

PARRAY

Pattern Array

Rule-based objects array generation with advanced transform options.

Eyedropper shortcuts

appearance

Object appearance

material

Material

modifier

non-topology dependant modifiers

transform

Standard transformations

uvw

UVW mapping

Utilities

paneling

Paneling and detailer tool.

Quickly create a grid of panels (boxes or custom geometry) in a planar surface. Originally intended to fast model furniture cabinets and add handles, now is a multi-purpose tool.

multimap

Multimap

Add individual UVW modifiers to a selection of objects, poly elements or faces. Randomize Gizmos, direct mesh coordinates or UVW Xform modifers.

maptools

Map Tools

Fit, center, reset UVW gizmos and delete UVW or UVW xform modifiers in selected objects from a convenient dialog.

magnet

Store snap settings state

Save and reuse different active snaps settings.

Color clipboard toolbar

Dockable color swatches pallette.Generate random colors. Store and reuse colors.

Random transform

Random transform

Apply random or pattern based standard transformations (Rotate, Scale, Translate) to nodes. Includes a clone option to scatter objects.

Viewports, scene management

bulb_usel

Un-hide selection

bulb_fsel

Unfreeze selection

locks_pos

Lock standard transformations

locks_pos

Layer isolation

Isolate-Unisolate selected obect/s layer/s.

locks_lay

Layer lock, visibility, backface cull...

Lock current layer or pick an object to change the layer state or properties.

Spatial Reference guides

refGuides tools are intended to improve and speed up architecture modeling, or any case where the use of dimensin references are needed. It allows to create construction guides, for accurately position and model objects. This guides can act as rulers, displaying custom measurement units in the viewport. The main functionality of this toolset consist in the creation of two types of reference objects: linear guides and protractors.

Line guide tool modes

Free-space coordinates creation

Orthogonal coordinates creation

Polar coordinates creation

Protractor tool modes

Protractor Free space

Protractor Polar space

Protractor Orthogonal space
