I would like to make a usability suggestion…
In your “Stairs with tunnel” video, before you add the tunnel, you stretch one of the two side bits.
Go to the 4 second mark in the video. The part that is highlighted yellow is one of the parts I mean. There is an equivalent part on the other side of the stairs - it has the same shape.
There are a lot of steps that need to be done to do the stretching. Don’t get me wrong; I still like what I see but it could be done with less work for the user.
I would prefer if I could highlight the two end rectangles of those shapes and just drag them along the axis. I can’t see the axis markers but I guess its the x axis.
If you go to the 30 second mark you can see the two rectangles facing the viewer.
Anyway, what I would like to do would be to:
- select the two rectangles
- gumball drag
- have the software make sure that everything stays connected and smooth
- pick the red or green curved top surface(s)
this way I can get the effect I want but with significantly less effort.
I’m not great at Rhino, I just play with and so I don’t know all the shortcuts but there are times when 3D software seems to require a lot more work than I would expect and it would be nice if some of that drudge work could be cut down.
Don’t get me wrong: I like what I see. I just think that it could be even better.
