In this patch I try to make modeling with curves a little less clunky so the modeler can start creating things like wires and pipes without having to visit the curve properties menu.
To do this I changed the defaults for curves to something more reasonable and added some common curve settings to the builtin Add Curve menus.
The changes are:
- All New curves will default to Full fill mode (previously it was half, which had very few use cases and mostly just caused a workflow paper-cut)
- All New curves will default to a Bevel Resolution of 4 (this seemed like a more reasonable default for today's hardware)
- Builtin Add Curve menus now have bevel depth, curve resolution, and bevel resolution values that can be changed without having to exit the 3D View.
This addresses the post I made on Right-Click Select that got a pretty decent amount of attention and support.
I'm more than happy to make changes to the patch to make it better fit in with the code base/vision of blender (This is my first code contribution so it might need work).
