I have heavily developed anaddon in 2.79 to assist with mesh surface segmentation. I utilize it in a professional dental modelling workflow. It has wide ranging utility outside of dental/medical. It has some limitations because it is implemented in python. I’d like to discuss the topic here about potentially adding some core features in 2.8 series because a lot of the development is already headed in that direction. Particularly the following areas.
-The heavily improved visualization
-The sculpt mask tools
-The contours/isoline visibility in weight paint
Here is a document, outlining some of the use cases, existing work etc. I invite comments and direct editing of this document.
Here is a semi-coherent video demonstrating the addon’s current behavior.
I’d like input from developers and users. Determine if this is appropriate for core development or if it needs to stay in addon space. If it is appropriate, I would like to set a target development cost, and I will reach out to my community of dental/medical users and try to reach that goal.
