2D Polygons to VW Walls

Recommended Posts

Has anybody written a script that can convert a 2D polygon to a VW Wall.

ie. Polygon = 3000mm X 90mm converted to a VW Wall that is 3000mm long by 90mm wide X the Layer Delta Z height.

Too many uncertainties to my humble taste. If the polygons were rectangular & have exactly 4 (or 5) vertices, it might be feasible, if not, then not. In either case, in the time you join the walls, you draw them.

Someone of course may have resolved the somewhat complex trigonometry and logic already, but starting from scratch is not really appealing.

The polygons I have been importing from another software package have only 4 verticies, mostly rectangles, some with mitred ends.

Let's say it is doable, but quite complex. If I had hundreds of walls to create, I might write a script, but (after thinking about it a bit more), only might.
