Interface 0.99.5a model edit-diagonal

Diagonal is a retractable set of functions from Model editor's edit menu.

That function applies an axial symmetry along a plan median to the non-selected axis:

  • either to the whole model if nothing is selected
  • or to the selected voxels

For y axis in green, and z axis
in blue, x diagonal plan is in red

It emulates the reflection of a mirror that copies half of the object into the other half. On the right example image, diagonal x behaves like a mirror represented by the red line.
In both case, the "mirror" plan starts from the coordinate origins of the axis, and stretches at 45° towards the opposite object edge.
The transformation enlarges the object limits if needed, 256 voxels being the maximum size of each side of an object.

Beware, this function mirrors everything: solid voxels, but also empty voxels!
