Creating Parametric Shelves in VW/Marionette

Recommended Posts

@Girwin Hi looking good.

Seems the direction is related to a larger number possible a rotation. See file. to change direction. If i were to place it in another file i would ungroup it when you have the one you need and it wont change again. If you want different shapes i would start with different templates.

Will look further.

Alan,

 

My apologies. The example file is derived from my design file, which became corrupted somehow. If someone wants to sort out why you can't change contour direction, that's great, but here's a working version.

@girwinHi you change the direction by moving the 1 to either x,y of z.

See attached. Hope this is what you wanted??

That's it, thank you Alan! Depending on the circumstance, it seems easier either to use a script that takes NURBS as an input (allowing the user to manually position them) or to use an earlier version of the script that takes polylines and a numeric position for each as the input (which makes small adjustments of position easy from within the script.) On the earlier shelving example, it was quite easy for the resultant curve to crash the contour portion (when the curb doubled over itself, for example) so I spend time, trial and error, moving the middle curve up and down. Fun!
