#DesignScript – Geometry.Translate.AlongVector#5 – Code to Node to Code

Hi Everyone:

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

Open the file Geometry.Translate.AlongVector.ds in the DS Editor and run it. The script is shown below.

Now open DS Studio, copy & paste the DSE script, Geometry.Translate.AlongVector.ds 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.  It can now be run as a Code Block of script, before the translation to Nodes takes place.

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.

The “Node to Code” operation as shown above.

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

Liberty was taken with adding color 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.
