EXM Extend Multiple Edges towards Edge

Coming from AutoCAD you might miss _extend in Blender. Extend lets you pick a main edge (Edge Prime) and subsequent selected edges will be extended towards the Edge Prime.

This Addon has two modes.
  • press Comma to move the vertices of the selected edges towards their projected intersection on Edge Prime.
  • press Period to create new edges between the closest vertex on the selected edge to their projected intersection on Edge Prime.

link: place inzipped mesh_tinyCAD folder into scripts/addons or scripts/addons_contrib

The addon uses bgl to draw projected edges onto the mesh.

Other CAD tools can be found on BlenderArtists, here's a quick roundup that Nikita suggested I add. (thanks);
