Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T63183: Add mesh doesn't respect 3D cursor orientation.

Just to note there are three or four duplicates of this already as feature requests in Right Click Select, so a little bleed through is not surprising :-)

Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T63183: Add mesh doesn't respect 3D cursor orientation.

Can I suggest that a "3D Cursor" option be added to the User Preferences -> Editing -> "Align Object To" drop down instead of, as is suggested here, a single New Object popup?

Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T61301: Wrong proportions - STL Export.

STL is a unit agnostic format - Is it possible your consuming application is expecting 1unit = 1mm whereas Blender exports as 1unit = 1m?
I see this behaviour in Cura using Blender's 3D Print Toolkit.

Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T51013: Unit scaling of 3D Print Toolbox doesn't work correctly.

i made 3d objects in blender and exported to stl file and opened in cura for lulzbot. the object printed pretty much is exacly 2 times the size it should be

Thanks for the update Phillip.

Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T58302: Metaballs Objects Appear to be sharing internal data.

Further observation:
I would expect separate Meta objects should not interact with each other (Although the Meta components within the object should)

Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T58302: Metaballs Objects Appear to be sharing internal data.

Under further investigation - The same behaviour seems to be present in Blender 2.79a.
This may indicate need to have a deeper dive into Meta objects than a simple bug.

Jon McKay (ammusionist) triaged T58304: Metaballs appended as orphan as Confirmed, Low priority.

I'm changing this to Low priority due to the work around above.
UI Experience should still be that if you select Metaballs to append Blender should import the Metaballs, not just the data, so I'm not dismissing it altogether.

Hi LazyDodo.
I have reproduced the error on a completely different computer with Windows 10 and an Nvidia 640m all updated drivers.

@Sergey Sharybin (sergey) , Confirming: The file I posted causes the compositor to slow and freeze when connecting the Plane Track Node.

You should be able to duplicate it here: Open the blend file and connect the Plane Track node as per the grease pencil arrows.

SOLUTION!!!
I investigated other Blender forums and found a reference to a duplicate problem - I was unable to grab the visible "Front" edge, of the manipulator, but I could grab the invisible "Back" edge.

I have no choice but to suspect my own system. The rotation widget still fails to function, but I will continue testing locally.

OK - Now I'm really confused. Please disregard the scaling problem - It's also in 2.69 so I'll put in a separate but report once I'm sure it's not my fault!

Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T38793: Manual Rotate and Scale widgets not functioning.

Sorry for any confusion - second part of the video I switched to the scale widget to demonstrate how, when rotated, when I scale on the global X, the Y axis is also scaled.
(Object mode only - I switched to Edit mode after this to demonstrate the expected behavior)

Additional note: In edit mode, scaling widget seems OK in all directions, but X and Y seem transposed for rotation.

Jon McKay (ammusionist) closed T38390: Vertex re-ordering for build modifier not working as Resolved.

On further reflection I think that you are telling me that if I want to use the build modifier, I need to reorder the faces.

Jan 30 2014, 12:19 AM · BF Blender
Jon McKay (ammusionist) reopened T38390: Vertex re-ordering for build modifier not working as "Open".

In that case: The page in the Blender Manual is wrong as it specifies any elements, (With the exception of Material sorting) can be re-ordered in this way - Not just faces.

Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T38282: Need delay option for noise modifier.

Alternately, if you want to use the same modifier twice in the same animation, you can keyframe the Influence option. Set it to 0 when not used and keyframe to 1 and back to 0 when you need it.

Jon McKay (ammusionist) added a comment to T38282: Need delay option for noise modifier.

Can you not use the "Restrict Frame Range" options in the modifier?
