Dovetail gadget almost working.

Post by jlstodd »

Hello,

I am trying to make the dovetail gadget work for me. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. The tails and pins are correct on one side but seem to be flipped on the other. I would greatly appreciate anyone's help.

You need to change the start node on the vectors that are the flipped ones. Go into node edit mode, put the cursor on the end node of the vector opposite to where the start node is (green square) and press P to make that the start node or do the same action from the right click context menu.
