I don't know enough about the code but I would expect there must be a way to ensure proper face orientation. There are other scripts that generate 3D geometry which seem to do it successfully.

As for the definition scale, perhaps you can call the "Scale defnition" command after creating the components?

I suppose TIG or Fredo6 would be knowledgeable about those things.

Thanks for your plugin, it's very good.
I wanted to ask you if you have any tutorial to create a cable.
When trying to do so, many straight sections are visible.
In what you can help me, I appreciate it.
Thank you.


Dave said it all, there is too much of something somewhere.

Hey ya again guys

I've done some improvements since then

I've added some presets for mariner chain.
Planning to do the same for roller chain, spur gear and bicycle wheel.
also some minor improvements such as bug fix here and there.

Presets:


About those last issues:
I've reduced the building scale, witch should fix clipping issue in most cases.
I still have to study the definition scale, thx Dave for the suggestion.
and I've a plan to fix inverted faces by doing ir manually when creating then, hopping it works.

thx yall :fro:

Roller chain presets added:


Mariner chain presets is based on RUD's catalog
Roller chain presets is based on FENNER's catalog

Why? you may ask.
A: Bc between all I've found, their was the most complete and detailed catalogues.

Let me know if you guys find any bugs.
Now planning gears and wheels presets.

Enjoy :-P

Is there possibility to make any kind of live preview of selected option? Something like JoinPushPull or Profile Builder... Selecting options without what they exactly mean is too archaic workflow for 2022.

Sure there is, but its out of my knowledge at the moment :/
It uses OpenGl operations to draw such things on Curviloft by Freedo or Shape Bender by Chris F.
Actually I may ask them for tips on how to make it...

On short period, I think its better for me to focus on documentation.

My current TO DO list:
- Documentation;
- Improve notification system;
- Live preview; (maybe study OOP too);
- Street along path (with intersections).
