Thanks Michael ...

I think you are probably right ... there are likely better things to spend my upgrading time on ... like generally improving my modeling and rendering skills.

cheers,
eric

Hi eric,

I too am interested in scripting for MoI, but more for repetitive feature tasks, sort of writing macros to do a series commands in one go, for instance to make a hole now, we make a cylinder to the desired diameter and depth and then do a Boolean difference, where if I could write a script to bring up a command option that you fill in with the depth, diameter, flat bottom or drill point, hit the spot and your done.

I started looking into like yourself and like you, did some programming in the '80's then took the engineering path and got disconnected from it. I have this page bookmarked http://www.howtocreate.co.uk/tutorials/javascript/introduction but didn't get past the first few pages as having a family and a full time job it's a bit of a juggle and at this age any free time I get I just want to relax and enjoy, at the moment I'm not in the mood for studying, maybe I'll get into one of these days.

Cheers
~Danny~

Hi Danny

Thanks for the Javascript reference. Like you, I read a little bit of it and now think I'll probably only go so far as learning how to use a script someone else has written for MoI and how to create a button or keyboard shortcut.

Staying reasonably upgraded in the architectural field is probably all the serious study I really can find time for and still have a life.

cheers and wishes for a great 2010.

eric
