SR 3D Builder 0.9.2.7

Postby xSergio74 » Fri Dec 20, 2013 12:51 pm

Hi everybody,

here is my Christmas gift for you all!
The latest version of my application is now available.
Download as usual from http://sr3dbuilder.altervista.org/

The most evident improvement is the UI.
It has been partially revisited and here is a list of changes:
- the displacement caddy has been changed a little: now when you hoover with the mouse over an arrow it highlights. you can now:
1) click on the arrow to rotate selection by 90° around the axle
2) slide mouse wheel to perform step rotation
3) Shift+mouse wheel to perform fine rotation of selection
- Moving the model to change the look at point now happens along the grid plane
- A navigation panel has been added (from the View menu) to make easy working with UI and with big (extended) models. It works quite easy:

. Click and drag on the plane to pan move look at point
. Click and drag on the globe to rotate model
. Click and drag on arrow to lower/rise model
. Use the red cross to move the panel (you can resize it if you have a little screen)
. Use the right vertical slide to change motion speed
. Use the top check to use a fixed horizon when performing rotations (recommended and more professional look and feel, even if, when placing parts under other, the usual free rotation mode may be better)

Here is a brief of most relevant other changes:


0.9.2.6 - Changes to previous version (2013.12.19)

Fix
- Parts colored in default color (ID=16) change colors when a brick is added to the same block
- Beveled gears wont work with non beveled ones when connected in parallel
- Flexible parts artifact fixed
- Changing flexible parts color now appears instantly
- Some minor issues with DrawBrickMode
- Removing and re-adding belts usually crash the application

Changed
- Many changes and improvement in the UI: Video will follows
- The AlternateUI mode now work with flex parts also
- The application now requires DotNet Framework 3.5 (distributed for free as windows Update for WindowsXP OS and integrated in more recent OS)

I recommend you to use the AlternativeUI as default UI and eventually turn it off when in special situation

Added
- Support for Mindstorm cables
- Support for Power Function cables (still some little bug in the shape)
- Support for many (not all) electric, Powerfunction and Mindstorm Elements
- ... and YES, flex cable will follow animation movements!
- Controls to rotate flex parts around their axles (E-D keys rotates starting point, J-L rotates ending point. Use with CTRL or SHIFT for fine rotations)
- Latest lDraw parts library available at publish time

Hi Sergio!

Your interface is great. But one little thing could maybe improved.

Deselecting a part by hitting the blue ring in the v-caddy with a right mouse click works good. Deleting a part by holding the right button and subsequently pressing the left one while hovering over the yellow circle works also great.

But when I am duplicating a part by right clicking in the yellow circle the context menu always shows up. Thats a bit uncomfortable. Maybe there is a way to prevent this from happening - I mean just when you right click the yellow circle...
