Edit/Reduce Mesh in Grouped Selected Shapes Option

Post by cca »

Hi,

It would be useful if you add a mesh settings to grouped selected shapes to isolate a specific object/objects especially for large scenes.
Or an isolate feature so you can only see and further edit the objects you want to reduce

Hello,

this is probably something that can be easily implemented via an add-on. You'll probably need some of following API functions:
  • sim.ungroupShape / sim.groupShapes
  • sim.getShapeMass / sim.setShapeMass
  • sim.getShapeInertia / sim.setShapeInertia
  • sim.scaleObject / sim.scaleObjects
  • sim.getObjectSelection
  • etc.
Have also a look at the existing add-ons, and how they are implemented.

Cheers
