Mesh Object Coordinate Mode for trueSpace 7.61

mesh axis icon

The point edit mode in object mode will orient itself to the element selection not the object local space. This script will install a button to toggle the behavior so that when the object coordinate system is selected the widget will orient itself to follow the whole object transform instead of the selection.

persistent base install required

Installation:

  1. check that the persistent script is installed
  2. drag node into the link editor
  3. delete the node when installation is complete

Press the button to toggle between default object mode orientation and true object orientation mode.

mesh edit object coord indicator

large cyan colored center indicates that the widget has been switched into true object orientation mode

IMPORTANT: This will also have an effect on the tangent space coordinates. So switch back to the default navigation before using the tangent space.

Object Navigation Widget for trueSpace6(modelside)

view control icon

Adds a navigation widget similar in appearance to that of the workspace widget. It works with meshes, lights and cameras. The widget is useful, but a long way from perfect. The most important limitation is that the widget does not maintain a set screen size and is not always aware of the view orientation. It is not a part of the undo system. Another limitation is that a new widget is created for each object that is selected.

  • center control switches between object and world space coordinates
  • the arcs rotate the object in X(red), Y(green) and Z(blue)
  • the cubes scale the object - right drag uniformly scales
  • the arrows and the triangles are for translation movements

Click the button and widgets will be added to objects as you select them. Click again to remove all the widgets.

Do not use the undo button with this widget.

June 25, 2012 - widget more aware of the view, right drag triangles motion, improved tool tips

PE Navigation Widget for trueSpace6(modelside)

view control icon

Adds a point edit navigation widget similar in appearance to that of the workspace widget. The widget is useful, but a long way from perfect. The most important limitation is that the widget does not maintain a set screen size and is not always aware of the view orientation. It is not a part of the undo system. Another limitation is that a new widget is created for each object that is placed in PE mode.

  • center control switches between object(pe selection) and world space coordinates
  • the arcs rotate the object in X(red), Y(green) and Z(blue)
  • the cubes scale the object in X,Y or Z - right drag any of them for uniform scaling
  • the arrows and the triangles are for translation movements

Do not use the undo button with this widget.

June 25, 2012 - widget more aware of the view, right drag triangles motion, improved tool tips, uses the point edit transformation instead of the object space coordinates
