[Plugin-Preview] Flow-Cut and Extrude-Poly-Along-Spline

Hi,

i've been working on some smaller plugins, first one is a new EdgeCut Tool, that automatically adjusts the new edges to the mesh-flow:

Flow-Cut Test


The other one is pretty much like the old extrudeAlongSpline Plugin,
but with a couple added features and full interactive Modelling workflow.
In short it allows you to extrude polygons along a given input spline:

Extrude-Poly-Along-Spline Test


These are still under development, just wanted to post a little preview here to get some feedback

Also i have not yet decided if they will become stand-alone plugins when finished,
or if i will add them to my PaintOnSurface & PolyPaint Plugin
I guess I'll decide when they are finished ;-)

greets,
Daniel

Flowcut looks great. It's like something from Per & Paul's Mesh Surgery, but I can't remember what they called it.

Long time user of paint on surface, so really excited to see some new stuff by this developer. Flow cut is a huge time saver, I've having to do this manually all the time. The extrude spline things is crazy too, wouldn't use it a lot but what a great modeling tool for abstract and fantasy stuff. You could really get creative with it, especially with all the abstract stuff going on these days. It never ceases to amaze me what people come up with. Looking forward to these!

I'd love to see flow cut offered as a stand-alone like, say, Solidchamfer because I think it's audience could be very broad.
No reason it couldn't be added to one your your other plugs as well though.

Flowcut looks pretty cool. It would be nice to have the ability to make multiple cuts at once with a choice of even spacing or user defined spacing.

EPAS also looks really useful.

Good Stuff!

It was called SuperFlange (you can still see a few videos of it on the Mesh Surgery website http://www.thirdpartyplugins.com/meshsurgery pretty much only the archive footage videos at the bottom work at this point), C4D had this before any other app. We also had a sculpting brush that changed mesh density as it went long before Sculptris existed and quite a few other little innovations.

Anyhow, good job on these plugins bellaLugosi! I'm sure many users will be happy to see them

Thanks Per!

I'm aware from this Thread that you had this functionality in your excellent MeshSurgery Plugin as well, so i hope you dont mind me picking up the idea having my way with it ;-)

I guess you'd make a lot of people happy with a remake of MS, so any plans for that ?


cheers,
Daniel

Both plugins would be very useful for me, especially Flow-Cut. Can't wait to get this!

Oh yes, absolutely go for it. I don't have time at the moment to remake Mesh Surgery and I'm sure a lot of people will be extremely happy to have this functionality back again
