Looking back, in retrospect, ( code to node DSS ) even though it was not too long ago, its apparent that translation technique improvement has been made. Even if one continues reading the commentary by Autodesk’s Shared on the labs forum post, giving tips on how to make the translation more efficient, its is apparent that progress was being made even then.
So thinking it would be good to continue improving the Language manuals translations, from DSE to DSS, making the files available for download and revisiting the chapters and look to improve the interpretations.
This is good place to point out and reiterate that DSS means “DesignScript Studio”, and that DSE means “DesignScript Editor”. Another one is DSLM, meaning “DesignScript Language manual”. Also point out for those that plan to or are running DesignScript Editor and Studio as a plugin for Autocad these translations were done with the standalone versions of DesignScript. (DesignScript Editor Lite & DesignScript Studio)
I’m sure that in running DSS & DSE with AutoCAD that there is much more capability and versatility than with the standalone version, so many more options to complete a task are available. Although this effort is strictly limited to learning the program in the standalone environment, it shouldn’t prevent one from doing it as a plugin.
DSLM’s chapter two, Geometry Basics, pages 10, 11 & 12, was broken into two examples and also with a third file which combined both examples into one file. In the first example originally was roughed out is shown below.
And following this is the refined translation.
And the image that is generated is shown below.
This is a little different that the previous interpretation indeed even different the manual. But the thinking here was to show the spherical point in the translation. (although it is not visible in this view.)
The initial second translation in chapter two is shown below.
And the refined translation is posted below.
The graphic window that is generated from the graph nodes is posted below.
Note that both of these interpretations have color, and that was added to the translation.
Finally there is a third file with shows the contents of the whole of chapter two in one canvas.
Note here that this image above, shows the visibility for each of the geometries to be turned off by means of the true or false statements associated with each object. With them all turned on the image will look like below.
And finally as promised the files are available for download at the links below.
Thanks for looking
