Getting extrusion value

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Is it possible to get the extrusion value of an extruded object in VectorScript?

I have checked the VectorScript Reference but found nothing appropriate.

Thanks for your help!

Maybe the combination of Get3DOrientation, Get3DInfo and Set3DRot would work?

Your suggestion has been the key! Thank you!

Here's a procedure to increase all the extruded object in a selection of a user given value:

[font:Courier New]procedure increaseExtr;

{the goal is to increase extruded objects in the selection of a user requested value}



increaseValue : REAL;




xRot, yRot, zRot:REAL;

p0X, p0Y, p0Z: REAL;

p1X, p1Y, p1Z: REAL;

result, isMirroredXY: BOOLEAN;


{check if the obj is an extrusion}

if (GetType(h) = 24) then


result := Get3DOrientation(h, xRot, yRot, zRot, isMirroredXY);

Get3DCntr(h, p0X, p0Y, p0Z);

SetRot3D(h, 0,0,0 , 0,0,0);

{here depth = extrusion value}

Get3DInfo(h, height,width,depth);

{I increase the depth}

Set3DInfo(h, height,width,depth+increaseValue);

Set3DRot(h, xRot, yRot, zRot , 0,0,0);

Get3DCntr(h, p1X, p1Y, p1Z);

{move of the misplacement p0-p1}

Move3DObj(h, p0X-p1X, p0Y-p1Y, p0Z-p1Z);

Get3DCntr(h, p1X, p1Y, p1Z);


increase := FALSE;



{ask the value to increase}

increaseValue := RealDialog('Increase extrusions in the selection of this value','10');

{apply to the selected set of objects}

ForEachObjectInList(increase, 2, 0, oggetto);
