Spotlight - Festoon / Bistro Lighting Tool



Someone on the team probably can make a festoon / bistro lighting tool/plugin.

Step 1: draw a polyline

Step 2: choose how much vertical swag to use OR the difference between the start and end heights

Step 3: choose what symbol to use for the bulbs

Step 4: choose the interval at which bulbs appear. Maybe default to every 2ft?

Gotcha 1 better...


Seth Robinson, one of the unsung heroes in our biz created a festoon PIO a few years ago for one of his projects and has OKed its being shared.  Simply copy the folder in this Zip file (folder structure intact) into your Plug-ins folder and add "String Lights" to your Workspace.  To use, treat it as a path-based object (like SoftGoods 2 or Stanchion Layout...)  Just know going in that Seth offers this freebie tool as-is so don't bug him for tech support, suggestions, or feature requests...
