Today i want to release my MagicBox plugin for trueSpace v6.6 and above (modeler side).

What is the MagicBox?

MagicBox is a plugin for trueSpace which gives you, all the time, both in perspective and non-perspectivel views the orientation of the world axes. This means you can see on the MagicBox where the Front, Back, Left, Right, Top and Ground is.

For the download follow me and scroll a bit down

Many Thanks, you are doing model side a better place :bananathumb:

This is a great feature for 6.6, thanks. I thought it was just an axis icon, but the ability to click on the letter and go to the view is clever. :)

Just had a play with this, and it works well. It's workflow enhancers like this that keep me using 6.6/ modeler (there needs to be a better way of saying this). I give this plug-in two thumbs up. :bananathumb: :bananathumb:

Efficiency, accuracy, fast view change... that plugin brings an extraordinary comfort at work !
I wonder how I could have lived so long time without it.

Thousand thanks DD :)

I don't have any bugs to relate but can I move the cube to other position? It's just that the cube gets in part behind the render menu (Render Scene, Draw objects as Solid, Perspective View, etc).

Many thanks again, this plugin is like something that you say, Why the hell I lived without it! :)

To move the cube is not implemented jet. This is because it is relative difficult to calculate the positions. And the calculation for perspective and ortho are differ from each other. So i don't have implemented this but i will see what i can do.

Wait for a version 1.1 ;)
