My mirror mirror tool is here.

I just updated for 2.8 - It allows you to mirror on the x,y,and z axis on an object selected with shortcuts.

Someone who makes stock media decided to use my code for some of their work. That stock media has shown up on NBC Nightly News, on
TechCrunch, and a few other places.

It's pretty cool to see it pop up in different locations. I'm glad someone found a use for my code :)

    • Must be pretty cool to see your work there! But thinking about the legal side here. Wouldn't that be CR infringement of the stock image creator? If he didn't ask you to use your stuff? Just wondering

      • It's quite possible that amdbcg released it as CC0, in which case it's up for grabs for anyone that wants to use it however they want. I'd be curious as well to know if this is the case. I'm sure amdbcg will chime in.

        • So I didn't expressly make it CC0 , but I did put the source on Github. Technically I could ask for a cease and desist , but the art looks pretty cool, and I get to see where it goes. I'm happy someone is using my code and giving it exposure. If I were looking for money, I'd move forward with that legal route, but I'm happy with exposure so I'm fine with how things are. Even though there was no attribution, people can still find me from that code if they wanted to . They have , and that's how I got to find out my code was in the news !

  1. Well and certainly the speech in news about the Russian hackers?
    P.S.: hello from Russia. We the same love the «Blender»!
