I was reading all the previous posts about modeling geodesic domes, etc. and the last post indicated that Artifice was going to figure out if it's possible to get the "arbitrary working orientation" to work in the case of the faces of an imported dome created in Dome 4.6.
The problem in general seems to be that when creating a triangle using the polyline tool (probably could be any polygon...) that isn't oriented to the x,y or z axis, when double-clicking the 'arbitrary working orientation' tool, you don't get a working orientation that is aligned with the face you just made.
Has this been solved yet, or is there a workaround?
This seems to be a feature that many people would want. Any chance it could be added? It doesn't seem that it would be complicated, after all, it's just a simple polygon, right?
Keep up the good work Artifice!
