Ignoring the direction of the line in spline section
« on: August 28, 2019, 04:21:25 PM »
Is it possible to do such a checkbox where we ignore the direction of the line and add a separate selection to the direction in which Railclone will be facing ?

The onlu method is continuous clicking and checking if the line has reversed properly.
I often generate lines from models and unfortunately they have different directions which can be painful especially when fixing it. Maybe it can be simplified somehow?

RailClone calculates everything from spline start (splines do have 1st vertex for a reason)
RailClone can't know which direction it is facing.

I can only suggest some methods to find reversed splines quicker.

Simplest way is to add extrude modifier and then shell with some material overrides.

Example:


Third shape is clearly different. Select it and reverse.
