Creating a 3D object

Recommended Posts

I would like to write a vectorscript which will draw multi-planar 3D polygons.

I want to be able to simply enter in the x,y & z coordinates of each point on the polygon. There would be about 12 points per polygon.

Does anyone have an idea how to go about this or have something similar I might get started with? Would it/could it be a PIO?

I have looked at some of the resources, but there does not seem to be a simple step by step overview for the novice scripter.

There are many ways to accomplish this, It all depends on what the purpose of this polygon might be..

You could create a custom tool/menu command:

- There is a command that picks a point the user clicks, not sure if it can handle 3D

- You can use the predefined simple dialogs that return a string, double..

- You can create your own dialog that handles all points at once.

You could create a custom object:

- You can create a pio that has all these points as parameters. The advantage here is that the user can move the points in 2D if you use controlpoints.
