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

Hi Everyone:

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ImportFromObj-ds#6

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ImportFromObj-ds#6

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ImportFromObj.ds#6

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ImportFromObj.ds#6

Note the script drawing operational failures, as highlighted in the DSE , for importing and generating the Subdivisionmesh. Once again access the help file.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry2

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry2

Click on the Geometry link, then the SubDivisionMesh section.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry1

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry1

One gets SubDivisionMesh properties page with the table showing the unavailability of the Class for DSS and the DSE. 

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry

Lets open DS Studio, copy & paste the DSE script, Geometry.Surface.SubdivisionMesh.ExportToObj.ds, into a blank canvas anyway. Edit it till one gets the Canvas as shown below.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ImportFromObj#6

#DesignScript -Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5- Code to Node to Code

 Hi Everyone:

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry-ds#5

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry-ds#5

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry.ds#5

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry.ds#5

Again note that the script is drawing errors from the DSE as shown in highlighted portion of the code. Taking a look at the DS Editors Help screen menu.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry2

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry2

Click on the Geometry section on the page and see the Geometry Abstract structure of the Design Script Program.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry1

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry1

Open the highlighted SubDivisionMesh section.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5-geometry

At the top of the page as highlighted one sees that the SubDivisionMesh Class is not supported in Design Script Studio Alpha nor in DS Editor Lite. Since this is what we are running, one might try this running as a plugin for AutoCAD.

Looking for a work around would be based upon creating a SubDivisionMesh on the surface geometry, in this case by faceting the  surface. This is another file that needs some help from a DesignScript enthusiast.

Nonetheless lets continue with the work that can be done with what we have. Open DS Studio, copy & paste the DSE script, Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry.ds, into a blank canvas.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#a5

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#a5

Now 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.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#a5-editing

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#a5-editing

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5a

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5a

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. Note the list of unexecuted properties.  Again, this needs work.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5b

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5b

The “Node to Code” operation as shown above.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5b-edited

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry#5b-edited

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.FromGeometry.ds#5a-Graphic Window

#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.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#a4

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#a4

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#a4-edited

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#a4-edited

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4a

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4a

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

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.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4b-edited

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4b-edited

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4a_Graphic Window

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ExportToObj.#4a_Graphic Window

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

#DesignScript – Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvertToSolid#3- Code to Node to Code

 Hi Everyone:

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-ds#3

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-ds#3

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid.ds#3

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid.ds#3

Again note that the script is drawing errors from the DSE as shown in highlighted portion of the code.  The ConvertedSolid properties are not being generated. We will have to see if an improvement can be made in the translation from the DS Editor (*.ds) file to the DS Studio (*.Bin) version.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#a3

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#a3

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid#a3-edited

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid#a3-edited

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.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#3a

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#3a

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. note the workarounds for various nodes.

Developing the translation for further interest, the Surface Mesh is further broken down to show the various faces with different colors applied.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#3b-alt

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#3b-alt

The “Node to Code” operation as shown above. Due to the fact  that this script has become rather long, it’s initially broken into two columns.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#3b-top

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#3b-top

Combining them back into a single column the highlighted Variables require  editing in order to have named identities to the variables.

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid-#3b-edited

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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ConvetToSolid#3-Graphic Window

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ByVerticesFaceIndicesWithColor.ds#2

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ByVerticesFaceIndicesWithColor.ds#2

Again note the script is drawing errors in the DSE as shown in highlighted portion of the code. Practically all of the SubDivisionMeshes properties are not being generated in addition to surface Patches property. We will have to see if an improvement can be made in the translation from the DS Editor (*.ds) file to the DS Studio (*.Bin) version.
