Alignment for trueSpace7.61

alignment icon

Align or distribute selected objects in 3D space. Based on the align and distribute functions found in the Adobe applications and Inkscape.

persistent base install required

This script comes pre-installed in the Unofficial trueSpace Updates - https://www.united3dartists.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=55

Installation:

  1. install the persistent base if not already installed
  2. drag the node into the link editor
  3. delete the node from the scene after install is complete
align panel

Align:

  • positions the objects relative to some reference point
    • last selected
    • first selected
    • middle of selection
    • world origin
  • min - move objects so that their minimum bounding box values are aligned
  • center - move objects so that their centers are aligned
  • max - move objects so that their maximum bounding box values are aligned
  • rotate - rotate objects to match the reference. This option does not work with the middle of selection reference point

Distribute:

  • positions objects evenly within a selection. the order is determined automatically based on the spread of selected objects in the x,y and z directions and on the active axes
  • min - move objects so that their minimum bounding box values are evenly spaced
  • center - move objects so that their centers are evenly spaced
  • max - move objects so that their maximum bounding box values are evenly spaced
  • space - move objects so that they have even space between them
  • rotate - interpolate the rotation values of the objects between the most outer objects by location

Axis:

  • Control which axes are active for a given action
  • Click the X, Y or Z buttons to toggle the corresponding axis
  • Some rotations may require all axes to be active because truespace may express rotation values as combinations of all axis values. This is especially true for the y axis rotations.

Undo:

  • runs the undo command repeatedly the same number of steps it took to align the selection
  • only 1 undo
  • must be run immediately for best results

Notes:

  • Does not work with 3D encapsultated grouped items.
  • icons for buttons were copied or adapted from Inkscapes align and distribution buttons

  • works with NURBS
  • selection validation for tS selection bug
  • updated installer

March 20, 2020

  • bug when align relative to first selected or last selected - the first/last was moving when the bounding box didn't line up with it's world coordinates
