Vertiex scaling in carbide create?


(Ben Chase) #1

I am not sure if there is a way to do it yet as I am new here, but it would be awesome to be able to create a simple rectangle and then scale one end of it to be narrower, or wider than the other end.

so essentially the ability to create a trapezoid through scaling an edge or vertiex?

You can do this by node editing, or subtracting rotated rectangles.

If you find yourself doing a lot of math based work, consider a tool such as Asymptote

I agree. It would be nice to have the option for both. Possibly show all the tool options once the tool is selected.
