Sets brush in pattern mode.

Allows each LButton click to paste a predefined volume of voxels. A pattern can be:

  • a selection of voxels from the model
  • a VOX file
When choosing a VOX file as a pattern, and if it contains more than one object, only the first one will be used as a pattern

VOX patterns are displayed in the pattern list, stored by default in the /pattern folder. That path is set in the config.txt configuration file on line dir_pattern.

While a pattern is centered on mouse cursor by default, these shortcuts allows to change the offset of the insert point:

  • +/-/9/0 (not numpad): x/y/z pattern rotation
  • PgUp/PgDown/Up/Down/Left/Right (if numpad, VerNum off): add local offset to pattern
  • Home: reset local offset of pattern

  • Create pattern from selection

Draws a pattern using:

  • either the original color of the pattern
  • or the unique selected color in the palette
