Known Issues

[Precision Tool] lua/weapons/gmod_tool/stools/precision.lua:436: attempt to call field 'Create' (a nil value)
This error randomly happens when using any feature that involves prop manipulation and a fix cannot be found, however it is not interfearing with the operation of the tool so just ignore it. ( It has to do with the undo.Create function, but it still registers it and allows you to undo )

If you are having issues, It is probable that your server or the server you play on has an outdated tool or is not using the official version. If you are experiencing errors, please copy and paste them into a comment box. We match up versions from the line locations and theres nothing we can do about them if we dont know whats wrong! So dont leave comments that its erroring without some proof! Please dont report errors that are in the known issues section, it just clutters up the chat!

I've downloaded this tool but tool modes 7, 8, 9 and 10 are missing, what's the problem?

does this work like the old Easy Weld tool used to work ? that was like the best tool for building bases quickly and precisely, and i cant seem to find it anywhere :|

@TokyoRoyalty It looks for whatever is bound to Reload. bind "r" "+reload" replace r with whatever key you want to assign to reload.

How do you rebind keys? I bound the r key to something and now the precision tool can't pull things.

I've subscribed but theres no Precision option in the constraints. Btw very useful mod

@Cuboidium Uncheck the nocollide option to prevernt that ^.^ Also make sure entire contraption mode is unchecked.

For some reason when i use the rotate mode it does not allow me to rotate, or even look somehwere else for that matter.

I like this tool, but I don't like the fact it constantly noclips all my stuff together. It makes the tool unusable because of that.

It's Garrysmod, you'd have to parent the props to stop that.
