View Full Version : Some tweaks to a few of the new modeling tools for more fluid workflow

A suggestion for the new modeling tools Slice and place mesh in LightWave 11.5.

Slice- Currently, the slice tool gives you a preview of where the new vertex/edge will go (which is great) but once you click on the target mesh, the vertex locks in place and you are not able to interactively slide it to a precise location. In my opinion, this makes it a step back from the add edges tool that we had in previous versions which allowed you to slide your newly created vertex and corresponding edge to exactly where you wanted it. Please allow for the newly placed vertex to slide on an edge as we are adding.

Place Mesh- Again, clicking on the target mesh locks the newly added object in place only allowing you to interactively scale or rotate with movements of the mouse. Please add in the ability to slide the newly added object over the surface of the target mesh before committing to a location. I think you can keep the mouse movement the same with scaling and rotating but maybe holding down the space bar, could allow you to slide the new mesh over the target before final placement.

Thank you!
