Certain features common in 3D applications

Recommended Posts

I'm using Luxology (The Foundry) Modo as my example, since this is the application I know best.

1. Mirroring along the X and/or Y axis when drawing (Also see Workplane). I believe this one is self-explanatory.

2. Extending an edge. Select an edge (or 2 consecutive nodes) and activate + drag. The old nodes are left where they are and 2 new nodes+the edge between them can be dropped into the curve.

3. Workplane. Selection determines a new, temporary x-axis with appropriate 0,0. A new workplane is defined and as long as this workplane is not reset, all functions will act with X/Y axises defined by this workplane. This is extremely useful.
