Development: New Pattern Select in Blender


Campbell Barton added an awesome new selection feature for the upcoming new version of Blender 2.77. It reminds me of how you can extend numerical ranges in spreadsheets. Super useful, and some clever programming!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Awesome!!! Very important for the toolkit in Blender. I would wan to know how implemented the rigginng system that explanined Danie Martínez Lara in the last Conference. Thank you very much and Happy Blending!!!!

    • Well, it doesn't support more than a single face/edge/vertex at a time. And the few times I tried it, it failed whenever slightly more complex topology was involved, particularly in edge mode. So yeah, needs more work.

      • I haven't used it yet, but I'm guessing those failures happened when crossing regions around pole vertices and non-manifold edges?
