View Full Version : New free plugin JettoLocal

11 November 2003, 05:36 PM

(I thought I had just posted this here... :shrug: )

For those of you who enjoyed JettoBevel and JettoFillet, I've released a new plugin (this is my first C plug, hope not last!)

JettoLocal allows user to define a local coordinate system, so after running the tool, all your geometry on background and foreground gets aligned with original Lightwave coordinates. Make all your editing and run the tool again to recover original orientation. Simple and easy.

The power of this tool is the fact that transformation is stored on layer's name, which allows to have different layers with different alignments (original idea was from Szabolcs "Jester" Matefy, thanks!). Moreover, you can close Modeler with a transformed layer, being easy to restore orientation at any time.

Well, the link is

As is said in the page, this is an early prerelease. It seems no buggy, but there's some work to do yet. Hope I got the needed free time. :p

Enjoy it, and post any suggestions

Pritty cool and interesting idea! Thanks!
Waht I'd like is a real time version of jetto fillet. :buttrock:

BTW, you did post it in the Resource section of this forum. People don't seem to answer very much there, I'm wondering if it might be because people don't look there very often even when they can see that there are new threads.
Therefore I think it is good that you reposted it here. :bounce:

Very well done :thumbsup:

Major props to Jettocrack the generosity of developing useful tools and sharing them so freely!!

Keep up the great work!

Downloading it out now, but this is a fantastic idea. I had a project a coupla months back where this would have been SO useful. I love that you can have different settings for different layers.
