i think it's something along these lines.. check out Chris's loft or other tools - they will make sense

Code: Select all
   if !file_loaded?(__FILE__) then
      toolbar = UI::Toolbar.new "RTK"
      cmd = UI::Command.new("Offset Multiple Faces (Remus Knowles)"){RTK.multi_face_offset}
      cmd.small_icon = "RTK/moffset_16.png"
      cmd.large_icon = "RTK/moffset_24.png"
      cmd.tooltip = "Offset Multiple Faces"
      toolbar = toolbar.add_item cmd
   end

Hey All!

Does anyone has this fantastic plugin working in version 8?! I installed offset.rb and the latest Multifaceoffset.rb but only the input dialogue appears and it doesn't do anything...

Thank you!

....or does anyone know how to offset multi faces in another way?!

It works fine in v8 for me [and others].
Have you tried running it with the Ruby Console open to see error messages.
It seems to be failing after the dialog, so probbaly an 'offest' error/deficiency...
You need both the Multifaceoffset.rb and the offset.rb in the main Plugins folder...

Hey TIG, Thanks!

I already placed the both *.rb files in the main plugins folder, just as usual...And I got the following error message in the Ruby Console but that is Chinese to me! :shock:

I don't know what's wrong?

What are the sizes of your box's faces and what size offset are you entering in the dialog - it might be that the face won't offset if there will be no result... How do you enter the offset exactly ? Can you take a screen-shot of the dialog just before you press OK...
This is a very simple few line script by Remus, it has very few things that could go wrong... :?

Hey Tig,

The size of the box is given in the capture en the amount of offset is 150mm...It has always done the trick...Can you mail me the offset.rb and the multifaceoffset.rb you are using?

Thanks for your time!

IT'S WORKING! Thank you!!! But the offset.rb and the multioffset.rb that can be downloaded from this topic are different than the ones you've send....strange huh?

Nevertheless thank you!!
Grtz and a happy new year!

I have tweaked the code slightly over time BUT they should still be the same basic functions ? ;)

Hi all

I have a question, how can I get a rounded offset?

For doing something like that --->
-1

good question!!

This is a great plugin. I know a simple way to improve it.

After the plugin has executed the offsets....it should prompt the option:

"Keep the offset face selected=1 Keep original faces selected = 0" (as in yes/no)

Is this possible? It would allow JPP/scale (for example) immediately on offset faces, without having to select them all manually. Wings 3D has a similar feature with its multiple offset feature.

Or a plugin to select inverse faces of a mesh? :?:

Ahhhh.

I would happily pay for a Voronoi TOS style plugin.

Why not multiple offset and then Artisan? edit, maybe it's not so "true" though.

I have the plugin working in SU8Pro, but only have the option to set the offset distance. What about all the other wild (and potentially very useful) options that appear in this video?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMnmb7rTVCs

The ability to keep faces or not, to do a sequence of offsets, etc... is this a different plugin??
