Feature: Multi-Mirror

Status: Working - buggy with some caveats - but fun to play with

Downloads

  • Oculus Quest (This build is sometimes slightly behind the PC versions because of some issues we're having with Github's build service)
  • Oculus PC VR (Rift, Quest via Link cable...)
  • SteamVR (Vive, Index, Reverb...)
  • Other Builds (Non-VR, Linux, Mac...)

What does it do?

Big expansion to the mirror to support many different types of symmetry:
Point Symmetry: Symmetry around a point. 7 familiies of axial symmetry plus 3 (soon to be 7) unique polyhedral symmetries.
Wallpaper Symmetry: 17 types of tiling symmetry

What's it good for?

Creating symmetrical patterns from your brush strokes.

How do I install it?

Download a build for your headset from the link above and unzip it. You can run the Windows exe directly. To install the Quest apk use SideQuest: https://uploadvr.com/sideloading-quest-how-to/

Where do I find the new mirror modes?

Long press the mirror button on the Experimental Panel.

Known Issues

  1. 1.
    Not all brushes work. Flat brushes are missing whenever the symmetry is mirrored (you might see half the number of copies you were expecting. Most tube-like brushes work
  2. 2.
    Wallpaper symmetry doesn't scale properly with the canvas
  3. 3.
    Wallpaper symmetry is not centered on the Mirror widget
  4. 4.
    Wallpaper symmetry sometimes transforms the stroke you're drawing. This is a bit confusing but it's possible to work with.
