For some reason I can’t draw a straight line in one particular spot on my model. I erase it, try again, and I still get this funny crooked line. What is happening here? I’m starting to get frustrated enough to use bad language.
Sorry, your link doesn’t work for me - YouTube opens with a black screen showing only an exclamation mark, and no ‘Play’ button.
Can you check it from your end?
I think your cursor might be sticking to another endpoint. Try using the arrow keys to toggle which axis the line is being drawn on. Or you can make a group to isolate the geometry.
Another possibility is that you’re using the freehand tool instead of the line tool.
I think you maybe using the “freehand” tool and not the “line” tool?
You need to use the pencil icon not the wiggly line
You’d have to be a robot to make straight lines with the freehand tool.
No, I was not using the freehand tool.
I did manage to solve my problem by moving the entire model over a few centimeters. I have no idea why that fixed it, but it did.
Is the line in question extremely far from the origin? Sometimes that causes it to look like a funny crooked line.
It definitely more than looked like a crooked line. It was a crooked line, making it impossible to close a face I needed closing.
Something like this?
That looks awful.
using the “quake” plugin?
Quick question. Are you drawing something very small?
I’m glad you figured it out! Congrats.
Its about 20 cm across.
I am guessing that you are seeing a snapping/rounding issue. If you can post the file, we can let you know, for certain.
