#DesignScript -Geometry.Surface.SubdivisionMesh.ExportToObj#4- Code to Node to Code

 

Hi Everyone:

This is the fourth of six DesignScript SubDivisionMesh translations, from the Surface category of the DS Editor (DSE) Samples.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj-ds#4

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj-ds#4

Open the file Geometry.Surface.SubdivisionMesh.ExportToObj.ds, in the DS Editor and run it. The script is shown below.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.ds#4

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.ds#4

Again note that the script is drawing a operation failure for generating the Subdivisionmesh in the DSE as shown in highlighted portion of the code.  We know an improvement can be made in the translation from the DS Editor (*.ds) file to the DS Studio (*.Bin) version for creating the mesh.

But first lets open DS Studio, copy & paste the DSE script, Geometry.Surface.SubdivisionMesh.ExportToObj.ds, into a blank canvas. Comment out the “(import(ProGeometry.dll)” script as highlighted above.  It can now be run as a Code Block of script, before the translation to Nodes takes place

Note the highlighted commenting out which must be deleted in order to activate the code. Again this file draws the same errors.

The preliminary translation is shown above, while the developed translation is shown below.

The red and yellow highlighted areas show the codes breakdown as shown in the DS Editor *.ds file. In this translation to nodes, one can get the SubDivisionMesh to operate, but we get an Export failure.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4b

The “Node to Code” operation as shown above. We are showing the export failure as we proceed with naming the variables.

Perhaps someone can suggest some remedy for this? In any case the  geometry that results from the various code translations is shown below.

In addition, DSS was run as a stand-alone application and the translation files are available to download from the DropBox links below.

Thanks for looking.
