#DesignScript LM – Chapter 22, Part III-2 – Surfaces: Interpreted, Control Points, Loft, Revolve

Hi Everyone:

On to the third part of Chapter 22 in which this is the second and the last post for this chapter.  But first the background on this translation.

This translation is from ( page 66) the DesignScript Language Manual, and can be found at DSLM  and is entitled; Surfaces: Interpreted, Control Points, Loft, Revolve. There is a previous video tutorial on Surfaces (#16) which may help with this chapter and can be found on the DS website’s tutorials.

The initial manual translation was made on the Autodesk DesignScript Community Forum and DesignScript.org. Now it can be found at can be found at Chapter 22: Surfaces: Part #1, Interpreted, Control Points, Loft, Revolve. (Note that it can be not longer be found on the Autodesk Labs Website, as linked)

This script pasted into the Design Script Editor is shown below.

As we have previously seen, taking the script and inserting it into a DSS blank canvas yields the result as a Code Block.

By removing the Commenting out notation, in this case just ” /*” & ” */” the code is activated.

Then the script is replaced with to nodes.

The development of the various variable’s properties take place by identifying each node.

The “Node to Code” translation is next.

Minor editing is desired as highlighted.
