Here's v1.3 viewtopic.php?p=346754#p346754
It fixes a last minute typo in my code that affected Lowest/Highest/Middle results - it should now work as advertised - feedback please...

Thank you so much Dear TIG for this brand new tool.

("to middle" and "to average" options don't work for me with su6_free and su7_pro)

Coming back to the thread which had (re)initiated the need for such a tool: What's the best way to flatten some geometry lines

I'm trying the old problem (not solved by SandboxTools/stamp)to achieve to drop vertices of a 3d path onto a 3d terrain. (I would like start with a path "melted up an down", "included" with/into the terrain)
I have made my road/path triangulated (with Sandboxtools/from contour)
Tip: I use [Plugin] Select Outer Edges v1.0 by Chris Fullmer to select outer edges :roll:


But Whatever the option I choose with Drop Vertices I got aberrant result :?



to nearest object , to nearest below..


Any Idea ??

(Alternatively, I have tried "Drape CPoints" + "Triangulate Points" and also "Artisan"€ and this one gives the better results for me from now, using "Crease Selection" Edges+vertices on the total path face .



Cheers
simon.

Bonjour TIG :)

OK, I was confused on the concepts Drape/Drope.

I have discovered that the kind of subdivision is important. Until now I was trying to drape with some classical triangulated shapes and that's why the result wasn't working.

As I have seen with your example above it was possible, I have discovered that shapes must be subdivided by real tin subdivision.(as far)






(I see we can't obtain this way something like we can do with sandboxtool/Stamptool but with a 3D path.)

Anyway This DropVertices brings so much !!!!+++ Thank you one more time and bravo!! TIG

Dear Adam,
your videos are invaluable to understand easily how things work and as reminders.
I have watched your previous a number of times.

I'm studying your propositions (soapskin&buble _ instant road (which makes the deal :thumb: :thumb: ) and I'm thinking to others. It's for tomorrow now.

Cheers,

simon.

Like 'On Screen Rolling Reel' - 'SplitUp' has never been published.
It's in beta testing with a select group [Rich O'B].
The bugs are now ironed out... I'll speak with the other[s] to see what we should do next...

Don't forget my NURBS plugin that's fairly stable. Just too powerful for mere mortals.

Scant on what you've tried...
arcs/curves do not drop unless they are exploded first...
but see this example...

Here is v2.0

Download

It now overcomes the curve issue.
All edges in a dropped curve are now treated as separate edges.

Does it possible to imagine a "drop" on X or Y direction ?
(sure I can rotate all before but...)

Hi TIG,
I found that To Middle and To average do not work.
Console indicates that line 93 z=z.to_s.to_l if z is faulty; cannot convert to length.
I changed it to z=z.to_f if z . (float) They now work.
Is this right ?

In this port are functions for the 3 axis.
I tried to stick to the actual extension standards.
Re-named it since it does more than just drop.
Added LanguageHandler, french. And a contextual menu for the most frequent ones I use.
