Thread: Rotate Around Mesh Centers

    Rotate Around Mesh Centers

    Hello, forum. Is there a way to rotate around multiple mesh centers in a single layer in Modeler? I can't find anything. Seems like a problem the LScript geniuses would have solved. Attached is a hopefully clear visual explanation. Again, the meshes are in a single layer. Any help is appreciated.

    You could ask Mentalfish if the polygon islands would do what you needed. Not sure if it works on individual parts?

    Essentially you need to rotate using local coordinates.

    You can do it with LWCad's Jitter Tool.

    A while back I tried to do something similar with Polygon Island 2. It didn't work.

    Yes, those selections dont have a "base" that Polygon Island 2.0 can create an average normal from, so it will not work. I have an old version of Polygon Island that does work with this, as it is using Y as the rotation axis.

    Thank you MentalFish for the PlugIn! It's perfect! You just saved me HOURS of tedious work.

    ALSO: Examining Polygon Island 2, I Kick myself for not buying before.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you...what a great forum.
