#DesignScript Geometry.Surface.BSplineSurface.NormalAtPoint#7- Code to Node to Code

 

Hi Everyone:

This is a DS file translation entitled Geometry.Surface.BSplineSurface.NormalAtPoint.ds, from the DesignScript Editor (DSE) Samples. It is the last in a series of seven BSpline Surface type of files.

Geometry.Surface.BSplineSurface.NormalAtPoint-ds#7

Geometry.Surface.BSplineSurface.NormalAtPoint-ds#7

Open the file Geometry.Surface.BSplineSurface.NormalAtPoint.ds in the DS Editor and run it. The script is shown below.

Geometry.Surface.BSplineSurface.NormalAtPoint.ds#7

Geometry.Surface.BSplineSurface.NormalAtPoint.ds#7

Now open DS Studio, copy the DSE script, Geometry.Surface.BSplineSurface.NormalAtPoint.ds and then paste it into a blank canvas.

Note the highlighted commenting out which must be deleted in order to activate the code.

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.

As one breaks down the code block in the canvas, it’s noticed that a custom node is required, as the script begins to draw an error. Create and use a Node to solve this problem

This script shown above should be written and run in the DS Editor and saved, then inserted into the DS Studio Library.  In this case, its again, the  PtTransporter node.

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

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.

Again one should make sure that the custom node PtTransporterFor003 has been loaded into the library and file.

The “Node to Code” operation as shown above. The  geometry that results from the various code translations is shown below.

Liberty was taken with making the color have some transparency as shown above in the graphic window.

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

DesignScript Curve Translation, Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint#20– Code to Node to Code

Hi Everyone:

This is the twentieth, in a series of forty-nine curve file translations. The file, Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint.ds#20 is from the DesignScript Editor (DSE) Sample files.

Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint.ds#20

Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint.ds#20

After copying the script from the DSE, open DSS and paste it into the canvas. The initial translation contains the essential elements as shown below.

Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint#20

Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint#20

Make sure the pasted script is commented out so that it isn’t running as well as the translation. (otherwise a crash maybe)

Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint#20a

Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint#20a

Satisfied that node definitions are suitably defined, initial the Code to Node operation.

Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint#20b

Geometry.Curve.NormalAtPoint#20b

Doesn’t look like any further editing is needed. The Geometry graphic that is generated is shown below.
