#DesignScript -Geometry.Surface.Split.UsingPlane#17 – Code to Node to Code

Hi Everyone:

This is the seventeenth of twenty-eight DesignScript Surface translations, from the Surface category of the DS Editor (DSE) Samples.

Geometry.Surface.Split.UsingPlane-ds#17

Geometry.Surface.Split.UsingPlane-ds#17

Open the file Geometry.Surface.Split.UsingPlane.ds, in the DS Editor and run it. The script is shown below. This file draws errors as highlighted below. We will develop some workaround for the translation.

Now open DS Studio, copy & paste the DSE script,  Geometry.Surface.Split.UsingPlane.ds, into a blank canvas.

Note the highlighted commenting out which must be deleted in order to activate the code.

Now comment out the “(import(ProGeometry.dll)” script. It can now be run as a Code Block of script, before the translation to Nodes takes place. Note the error is reporting “Surface.Split operation failed“.

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

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. The work-around to the “Surface.Split” operate was changed to the Trim command the script to return values.

The “Node to Code” operation as shown above. A little editing is desired.

The geometry that results from the various code translations is shown below.

Liberty was taken with making the color have some transparency as shown above in the graphic window.

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

Thanks for looking.
