Re: Shape Generator plug-in
Here's the version 1.2 of ShapeGenerator plug-in which provides an additional view of the 3D model from entered coordinates, when you select the new 3D preview radio button.



Many thanks to Dorin who programmed this change! smile

Re: Shape Generator plug-in
I want to show some tips:
1. Triangular prism

Some explanation:
-On Shape Generator set to pair of points at same coordinate.
In this case I chose 5+8 and 6+7.
-In plan, select the generated shape and open Modify furniture - modify materials.
- As You see in second image there are 5 sides in place of 6

2. Pyramid

-Same procedure but for 4 upper points.

3. Roof part

-Make more and combine in plan.
-I recommend to apply texture AFTER resize the shape (if you need to resize)

And this could be this sample


Hope to be useful to somebody.
PS. Don't believe Emmanuel entirely; He write all codes, I have only the idea and garbage of useless file.

Re: Shape Generator plug-in
Very nice plug-in.

I would love when I could save some coordinates for future use.

Because it takes time to put in the coordinates correct for different shapes, it would be nice if I can save already created coordinate with a name, an later on restore that coordinates. Then I only have to make small adjustments to this example. Similar to the "Reset coordinates", only that I can choose reset to which shape:

Re: Shape Generator plug-in
Hello, I want to fork this plugin in order to create two ones:

  • stairs creation (you can set number of stairs, dimension and direction changing...)
  • roof creation (you specify a base shape and automatically create a roof with that shape)

That cannot be done with that tool because they can need more point and also It can be done with more specific parameter to be more user friendly.
I think that this can be done easily starting from this plugin and creating small customization, but I do not find the source code, is it available?

Re: Shape Generator plug-in
Thanks for proposing to create new plug-ins. The source code of this plug-in included in the SH3P file (which is just a zipped file).
For your information, Dorin already created the Multiplier plug-in which can be used to create stairs and he also started to work on a Roof plug-in. Maybe you can help him?
