We’re adding the ability to add a point to an existing shape while editing to Easel Beta!
To opt into beta, check out these instructions: How to Opt Into Beta
How it works
- Select your volume on the 2d editor.
- Enter edit mode (
e on the keyboard, double-clicking the volume or clicking the edit button).
- Drag your cursor along the path of the shape and observe a potential point appear.
- Click on the location you would like to add the point.
- Drag/edit the new point as needed.
Working with extremely large or complicated shapes with a lot of points will degrade performance in Easel.
- Volumes with less than 1k points should receive no noticeable impact on performance.
- Volumes with 8k+ points will have up to a few seconds delay in the edit actions.
This isn’t something that I would find useful personally, but I appreciate you guys continuing to come up with solutions for everyone.
This is a great tip, I can see it to be very helpful as I teach Easel in depth, and any tricks or tips are very cool to know…
This is definitely something that I would find useful, and I am extremely excited to see more Easel development!!
Been waiting for this for a while now! Thanks Inventables Team
Oh this is quite exciting! Well done!
This is great. I found it today in easel and have been working with it. We’ve needed this for a while. Thanks to all the Inventables team!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU This is something I have been wanting for a long time!
Thank you for the feedback, this is now out of beta and released to everyone! We adjusted the ui a bit, making the anchors squares to differentiate them from the add point or existing points. Let us know if there are any issues.
It would be pretty cool to be able to prescribe a “distance from point” variable that would let you set a more precise location for the points.
