Super-minor bug in JPatch 20051121 Test Release

Postby squirrelhavoc » Thu Dec 08, 2005 2:05 pm

Hello, when messing with the new lathe editor, the created shapes don't have their patches aligned correctly. Or only some of them will be aligned. All it takes is a click on the menu to realign them, but I thought I would mention it, just incase no one else has...

EDIT: I also noticed that extrusing will create flipped patches, but not all of them will be flipped. So you have to select the ones that are reversed and flip them

This behavior has been there forever.

:oops: Oh, my apologies. sorry for not replying earlier.

Yes, pndragon is right, this has never been different. The reason is that the lathe tool doesn't create the patches - it just creates the mesh. If you then run the patch-finding algorithm, it's still the old algorithm that doesn't care about front- or back-sides.

I agreee that especially with the lathe tool it would be trivial to automatically align the patches, but I haven't done that yet. But this will be implemented, I promise :wink:
