This is the fifth in a series of thirty-two Solid file type translations. The file Geometry.Solid.LoftFromCrossSectionsGuides.ds is located in the DesignScript Editor (DSE) Sample files.
Open the file Geometry.Solid.LoftFromCrossSectionsGuides.ds in the DS Editor, the resulting script is shown below.
There is the slight miss-spelling that runs common in some files as highlighted above. Open DS Studio, and paste the DSE script, Geometry.Solid.LoftFromCrossSectionsGuides.ds into a blank canvas.
Note the commenting out which must be deleted in order to activate the code.
Now commenting out the “(import(ProGeometry.dll)” script as highlighted above must be added. It can now be run as a Code Block of script, before the translation to Nodes takes place.
The preliminary translation is shown above, while the developed translation is shown below.
We are going to post an alternative translation here. Rather than using a multitude of PointAt Parameter nodes, an alternative method of drawing out the parameter points in the collections is used.
For both translations the red and yellow highlighted areas match the description and properties layout that is given to the script in the initial DS Editor *.ds file.
Continuing with the “Node to Code” operation above, no editing was required. The geometry that results from the code(s) is shown below. Note that liberty was taken with applying colors to the translation and DSS was run as a stand-alone application.
The files are available to download from the DropBox links below.
Thanks for looking.
