First off all, thank you for being interested in my question.
I have downloaded the extension daiku`s [Rotate-90] after you mentioned it. And have tested it.
It is almost what i meant. I have assigned a short cut (around the blue axes) but in this extension you can’t hold the component. First you must place the component and than you can rotate it.
For the workflow it is better when you can rotate while you hold the component. (Just like in the video) .
1. Did you mean arrow keys on your key board, on your screen, or both?
this doesn’t really matter to me, if you could do both then that would be totally crazy, but I think it’s better if you keep it on the screen. Maybe make an option to assign a shortcut
2. What do you use more often; copy moving your objects/groups/components or just moving them?
Copy Move is what i use more.
Basically it is copy, move and rotate what I use constantly it actually goes hand in hand.
For example: I have to draw a lot of fences for a festival. this is not straightforward. therefore the native tools M + CTRL x no. are not useful. I want to hold a component and be able to place + rotate it.
Just like in the video with the scaffholding.
3. How does Briscad set how far to move the objects/groups/components or does it just “Know?”
You can set this yourself. It stands at 2072mm by default. (for scaffolding) But if you change the distance it will stay that way. Even if you do other tasks in between. Until you change it again.
Its not the Main Briscad but it is Scad Re-Events. It runs on Briscad but the interface has change. Its actually one big extention . It is really designed for the event industry. I haven’t used the software for a while. And it is expensive to purchase. But they offer a trial for 30 days.
