Blender 2.8 : 3D Cursor Update


The excitement about the new 3D cursor doesn't stop! Jayanam shows us how you can use the new rotation feature - I hadn't really understood these implications yet but they're super super useful!

I just tried the new Blender 2.8 and saw they added an update for the 3D Cursor. Here is the video in which I show this feature and also the new Add Cube tool.

My name is Matthias from jayanam and we are recording gamedev tutorials for our youtube channel. We are also creating models and games using Blender, Unity, Krita and other applications.


  1. Please change the name of tool from add cube to add box. Definition of cube is one of equal dimensions. Dont want any part of new blender to be technically incorrect.

    I feel (and have felt for years) like Blender has most of the pieces already to become the most optimized 3D package around--it just takes some re-arranging, unifying, streamlining, and polishing the existing features, like this 3D cursor feature is doing.

    I hope Blender soars towards this direction of smarter re-modification.

    • Nah - the Curve tools leave much to be desired, still prefer Max over Blender in that department, same goes for the alignment tools and pivot management - too much of a hassle. The new Random Colors feature?[face palm] - Max has had WireColors for ages and it looks more advanced. All in all, I like Blender's pace 'terms of development and am looking forward to giving it a spin when it's finally out!

  3. Will that go for vertices and edges as well? Restricted to faces it's not that useful. Making this feature a toggle would be nice, too.

  4. It's also odd that the Dev's say they wish to make Blender more like other 3D applications. Yet Blender uses Z up and other applications use Y up(which I prefer). I wish they would change that.

    On a side note I use Blender and I do love lots of new features that are being added.
