Select welded edges as path and a face before using this script.

I unzip to plugins; get FollowAndRotate_cn.rbs, FollowAndRotate_en.rbs and inputbox.rb, which I must rename as I have a larger file of that name already (I put far.skp elsewhere). No plugins result in my pull down. I rename them *.rb and still nothing. Any tips?

OK, thanks, though they did not work that way ---> It dawned on me belatedly that I needed to provide for the re-naming or not of inbox.rb: if I rename it then I guess I need to go through the code and replace the old name with the new name wherever it occurs.

What? You already have a inputbox.rb? This plugin appears to have a file called that, as well as another plugin then? Do you know what other plugin supplied the other inputbox.rb? If you PM them both to me, I'll look at them and see if I can help un-entangle this issue. It will probably take more than just changing file names inside the script.

Thanks, Chris.

Yes; yes. The three being: FollowAndRotate_cn.rbs, FollowAndRotate_en.rbs and inputbox.rb.

Do you know what other plugin supplied the other inputbox.rb?


Both inputbox.rb open as below, but are different implementations:

Inputbox.rb Copyright 2008 jim.foltz@gmail.com

The Inputbox class makes it easy to create user input
dialogs by providing a consistent interface to UI.inputbox for
text fields and drop-down selection fields.


Checking the date stamps and my downloads leads to 2 DLs on 4.4.: inputbox and model_location.rb, which may or may not require input box (it has been snipped from some search result locations).

Certainly I can try renaming the existing to something else in order to see if that will enable FAR.

The renaming (and re-starting SU, as opposed to just re-loading the scripts) worked, but behavior is erratic. (I didn't want to trouble you further, Chris, if I could make the re-naming work.)

First 4 images show a failure with a welded straight path (called a curve by SU) and a rectangular face.

Second 4 show success with a truly (apparently) curved path and a round face.

The final image shows the SU upload dialog which leads one to believe you can upload more than one attachment at a time but which then ignores the request.

Hi,

I had forgotten this plugin because it almost never worked properly. This time it has worked once, but only after I had divided the line and rewelded it.

Then came back the error message shown in Ruby box .

So for me it only works if the line has been previously divided and re-welded.

So again, the correct workflow.

- Draw a line and divide the line (If it is a curve than explode and weld)
- Weld the line
- Select Face and Line
- Start FAR

This should work for all.

Charly:

I've had trouble with this plugin along a straight line as many have posted here (on a Mac w/ 10.6). Tried your suggestions of dividing line and welding but no luck. In fact the line doesn't even "weld". Curved lines seem fine and while "fun", a straight line is also needed more often than not for many hoping to use this tool.

Thoughts/further suggestions?

Please try it with the attached file. Only select the face and the line.

This Plugin sure appears to be problematic and doesn't seem to work no matter I've tried (based on other posts here).

I'm appreciative of its creator's efforts, but frustrated that it isn't stable or bug-free.

Hi,

It works normally only with a face and a curve. If you want to use it with a straight line than have look at page 5 of this topic. There Ecuadorian shows a tutorial video.

Better if surface is drawn on the ground (Flat) as a top view as the helix is vertical
but not obliged in theory any orientations can be made
Seems your examples fail because of the Construction Point is out of the surface!

You can add a Construction Point on the surface By the Didier Bur Projection

Your result is normal ;)
Scale 0.2 signify 1/5 at each segment generation!
so
1, 0.2, 0.04, 0.008...so toward very tiny very speedy ;)
Take 0.95 if you want a more smooth reduction :)

PS Put a Construction Point at the center of the surface make nothing more! ;)
This one must be excentered for make something funny!
