Bug Fixes:

  • Toolbar: Curves: Flip Curve:

    • The Flip Curve icon was slightly larger than the rest, causing a minor issue with switching between the Curve category and any other category. The Flip Curve icon has been resized to fit properly.

  • Older Files: Gumball/ViewPort Control Handles (VPCH): Move/Rotate:

    • Some files from previous versions of MatrixGold were not populating the Move/Rotate VPCH. Those VPCH should now show in the Viewport where applicable.

  • Toolbar: Curves: Extrude Curve:

    • The last release introduced a bug with Extrude Curve, which prevented it from working with open curves. This has been resolved, and Extrude Curve should work with open curves again.

  • Preferences: Status Bar: Status Bar preferences were saving but not populating correctly on launch. Now, those preferences should save and load correctly between sessions.

General Improvements:

  • Tools: Profile Placer: Placement Method:

    • New Placement Method – Frontal

    • This orientation behaves similarly to Matrix Legacy and RhinoGold, keeping profiles perpendicular when assigned to non-planar rails.

    • Prevented scalar handles from collapsing into one location on planar objects.

  • Tools: Ring Resizer: Various:

    • In some cases, the default tolerance was causing odd shapes to appear in some files.

    • ▪ The tolerance has been lowered, and the odd shapes should not appear.

    • Added functionality to check for invalid geometry.

    • ▪ Added an associated warning message if invalid geometry was found.

    • In some cases, grid amplification prevented some valid geometry from being added to the document.

    • ▪ The grid amplification has been increased, and the geometry should now populate.

    • In some cases, Ring Resizer located a curve on the Ring Rail and treated it as the Ring Rail.

    • ▪ Added a check to prevent those cases from occurring.
