Hi Moi'ers

Is it possible to add dimensions and angles of a model, as in sketchup, by adding a script?

I think it would be very useful :)

you can use the free Design Spark Mechanical for this sort of thing!
And advantage you can make the Fillets that have some problem in Moi! ;)

Hi Stardust,

Sorry no, that's not really feasible for a script. Scripts can do things like automate existing functionality but dimensions are something that need need low level support in the draw engine, they're not like just automating and repackaging existing functionality like a script can usually do.

So it's not really something that can be added by a script, it needs to be added more directly into some of the core MoI modules.


> I think it would be very useful :)

Certainly it would be! I am planning on working on it for v4.

I wrote this script today evening for my friend. It's very primitive, but it's better than nothing. :)
I have no plans to continue developing of this script. Sorry.

I have not the "little Lines" of extremities!
Must I draw them separately ?
And alas we can't use the Helpers lines for align because of the second click ! :)
Seems Scale inactive! ?

Hi Pilou:

Me neither.

> Must I draw them separately ?
I guess so. Max?

> And alas we can't use the Helpers lines for align because of the second click !
Any helper lines can be created immediately after starting script but before first click defining location of dimension arrow head #1.

> Seems Scale inactive! ?
It's activated after 'first click' for arrowhead #1.

Cheers,
Hamish

HI eric (ERICCLOUGH)

first time
You need to copy the two files in the commands folder of MOI

second time
you need to add the shortcut keys and the command :
_dimensions

Script update. Fixed few bugs. Changed internal structure. Script modifications should be easier.

>> Must I draw them separately ?
Yes, you should draw them manually.

>>And alas we can't use the Helpers lines for align because of the second click ! :)
You can use LockConstructionLine script
code:
var cln =0, gd = moi.geometryDatabase, cl = gd.getObjects().getConstructionLines(), cll = cl.length; 
for (var i=0; i<cll; i++) if (!cl.item(i).isTemporary) cln++; if (cln == cll) { gd.removeObjects(cl) } else { cl.setProperty( "isTemporary", false ) }

Bind it to key. Draw construction lines. Run script (the lines will be locked). Run script again to delete the lines.

Hamish, Chri, phlatt5th
Thank you :)

Forget to say about hidden features.

Double click title to load default values
Double click "Scale" to reset scale.
