Distribute ZAxis?


#1

The distribute command is very useful. But now, I am drawing a bookshelf and I can’t make it work on Z axis. There are only X and Y to choose from and I can’t specify Z as a custom direction.


#2

Use the “Direction” command line option, then draw a vertical line in one of the facing ortho viewports like Front or Right…

Uhhhh… So many steps for something used frequently.
There are so many things that need vertical distribution and redistribution, I wish for the Z axis to be introduced along X and Y.

Distribute uses the X and Y axis of the active Construction Plane. Switch to a different view such as Front or Right with a CPlane with the X or Y axis in the desired direction. Or change the CPlane in the view you are using.
