#DesignScript – Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem#3 – Code to Node to Code

Hi Everyone:

This is the third of seven DesignScript translations, from the Vector category of the DS Editor (DSE) Samples.

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem-ds#3

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem-ds#3

Open the file Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem.ds in the DS Editor and run it. The script is shown below.

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem.ds#3

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem.ds#3

Now open DS Studio, copy & paste the DSE script, Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem.ds into a blank canvas.

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem#a3

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.

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem#3

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem#3

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

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem#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.

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem#3b

Vector.ByCoordinates.ContextCoordinateSystem#3b

The “Node to Code” operation as shown above.

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

#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

Geometry.Surface.SubDivisionMesh.ImportFromObj#6

We are going to again ask for help on developing a work around on this file. For this the files are available to download from the DropBox links below.

#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

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

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