Options Tool


Select Pushed

All guides pushed by this tool will be subsequently selected. This is a good idea if you have just pushed some guides back over the surface. These guides will then be automatically selected and can be further edited.


Activating this setting will let you push guides back above the surface.

Use Normal

Activating this setting will ensure that the guides are always pushed in the direction of the surface Normals (i.e. towards the outer surface), which otherwise may not always happen.

Distance [0..+∞m]

This is the minimum distance to the surface that the guide points must maintain in order not to be pushed away. Entering large values here will not do any good since the guides will then only appear in a zigzag arrangement.


Use this setting to define the strength of push along the length of the guides.


When active, this setting serves to push the guides apart.

This will only work well with guides containing few segments. Clicking the Apply button to see the results, but don’t be surprised if it takes a moment to calculate (depending on the number of guides used).

Distance [0..+∞m]

This is the minimum distance the guides must have from one another. Otherwise they will be pushed apart.

Relaxation [4..1000]

This is the number of (internal) steps in which the guides will be pushed apart. Higher values will produce more precise results: The guides will be pushed apart more equally. Very low values will result in some guides being pushed much farther apart than others.


Use this setting to adjust the strength of push along the length of the guides.
