So I’ve been working on a bunch of new apps and would love to get some feedback as they get released.
Here are the apps I’m working on right now:
Here is a description of what each app does:
Depth Changer - Already released
Allows you to select one or more shapes and change their depth at the same time. Sometimes you want to move several shapes up or down in your project without selecting each shape individually. This app allows you to do that.
Allows you to create a series of overlapping rectangles in order to simulate a slope. You can adjust the length, width, height, and number of steps in the slope. You can also use bezier parameters to control how the slope changes.
Similar to above, only you can create a cone.
Text on Path
Select any path in your project (open path or closed shape) to start. Then in the app you can select any google web font you want to display on the path and change variables such as direction, baseline, font size, rotate along path, start and stop percents along path. Working on the ability to upload and use your own font (true type or open type only).
Will explode a shape into all its sub components regardless of overlap. Will upload animation of how this works.
Allows you to extract a sub path from an open path or closed path. Useful in that you can get a path from a shape without having to use the overlapping shape method. Allows you to choose start point (top, bottom, left, right) and the start / end percentage of the sub path you want to extract.
I’ve submitted the apps to inventables development team for review. So hopefully you’ll see them in the next few weeks.
It’s been fun developing these apps. Does anyone have any apps they’d like to see?
Two that I’m thinking to work on:
Thicken Line / Path
Similar to the offseter app, but specifically for thickening lines or paths in a shape by a specific amount.
Ability to create a texture within a specific shape.
Cheers and Happy Carving,
