Will automatically make use of the fast(er) features
map_first_last if run on
A blender addon based on a client-server model using grpc and tonic.
The blender addon is the client, and it only connects to
The server binds to
localhost as well; so it should not be reachable from any other computer (not thoroughly tested), run it with this command:
cargo +nightly run --bin toxicblend_server --release
cargo +nightly run --release
If the grpc server (for any unimaginable reason) would crash, blender will hang waiting for response.
This can easily be fixed if you run blender from the console. A
C will fix it.
Project is still in development, I will add more operations.
These operations all operate in blender edit mode:
Will convert a flat mesh object into a 2D outline. Right now the data must be in a plane crossing origin (one axis need to be zero)
Works similarly to the built-in simplify command, but instead of a distance it takes a percentage. This percentage is applied to the largest dimension of the AABB and that value is used as the Ramer–Douglas–Peucker distance. Works on 3D linestrings/polylines (no faces).
This percentage change makes it possible to simplify tiny objects without having to scale them up, simplify and then scale them down again.
Runs the Voronoi sweep-line algorithm on loops of 2D lines and builds a 2½D mesh (input geometry must be on a plane crossing origin).
Important: You must encircle the input lines in one or more closed perimeters.
Even more important: Edges may only intersect at their end points, use the
Knife intersect operation to make it so.
Takes the output of the 2d_outline command and calculates the 3D centerline.
This operation only works on non-intersecting loops with islands of loops inside. E.g. fonts.
If you only need the 2D centerline, you can simply scale the added dimension to zero.
0 for setting Z to zero.
Runs the Voronoi sweep-line algorithm on 2D points and lines (geometry must be on a plane crossing origin).
Takes an edge-only 3D mesh, like the output of the Voronoi operation, and puts voxelized tubes along the edges. This operation does not require flat input.
This operation uses building-blocks for voxel generation.
Takes an edge-only mesh, like the output of the Voronoi operation, and puts metaballs along the edges. This operation does not require flat input.
This operation is located under
Generates parametric Lindenmayer systems 3d graph/curves.
This operation is located under
Generates a parametric Gyroid
Gyroid intersected with an egg-shape:
Runs on a single flat wire-frame object made of edges (no faces) and tests for self-intersections. If an intersection is found, the intersecting edges will be split at that point.
Selects all wire-frame vertices that only connects to one other vertex. Useful for identifying dangling vertices.
Selects all (wire-frame) vertices that are connected to already selected vertices. It continues doing this until an intersection is detected. Could be useful for deleting strings of vertices generated by 'Knife intersect'
Select edges that are connected to the selected edges, but limit by an angle constraint.
A is selected and edge
B is directly connected to it,
B will be selected if the angle between
is smaller than the angle limit.
B will then be used to select more edges and so on.
Selects all vertices that connects to three or more other vertices. Useful for selecting intersections.
Checks a mesh for anomalies, double edges etc. Will print results to the console/terminal.
- Update to building-blocks 0.7.
- Add command line options to the server, setting bind address and port. Possibly feature gated for security reasons.
- Port the rest of the operations.
- Lift the 'flatness' restriction, it should be enough with flat in any plane.
