Hi Everyone:

This translation is from the twenty-sixth chapter and is the** last chapter** from the **D**esign**S**cript **L**anguage **M**anual and can be found at **DSLM ***(pages 76-77) *and is entitled*; Non-Manifold Geometry. *There is a companion video tutorial on the **DS **website’s tutorials, Non-Manifold Topology (19). This will be the first of two translations.

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 26: Non-Manifold Geometry – Part 1* *(Note that it can be not longer be found on the Autodesk Labs Website, as linked)

Copy and paste the script from* (page 76)* the **D**esign **S**cript **L**anguage **M**anual into the **D**esign**S**cript **E**ditor. Below shows the script in the **DS** **E**ditor with the results of the code being run, and the window graphics inserted alongside for reference.

Non_Manifold_Geometry.ds#1

Now open **D**esign**S**cript **S**tudio and paste this same script into the canvas.

chp.26-Non_Manifold_Geometry#a1

There is a little editing desired as high lighted above with the results shown below.

chp.26-Non_Manifold_Geometry#a1-edited-2

The initial **DSS** translation is shown below.

chp.26-Non_Manifold_Geometry#1

Continuing on with the more detailed and defined translation with the renaming of the variables, identifying and referencing them with their corresponding nodes.

chp.26-Non_Manifold_Geometry#1a

As a reminder, selecting the graphic window one can get an enlarged view of each snapshot.

Continuing on to the “**Node to Code**” operation.

chp.26-Non_Manifold_Geometry#1b

A little more editing is desired.

chp.26-Non_Manifold_Geometry#1b-edited

The Graphic Window(s) that result from the script is shown below.

Non_Manifold_Geometry#1-Graphic Window

Reiterating, this was done on the stand-alone version of **D**esign**S**cript, rather than as a plugin for Autocad. The files are available for downloading from the **Drop-Box** links below.

Thanks for looking.
