[Plugin] Polar line - 20110525

Postby Matt666 » Fri Jul 04, 2008 4:42 pm

Hi all.
Following a request, here's a script that created a polar line.

1- Specify First point
2- Complete table.
Sans titre-1.jpg


English and French versions.
all improvements or suggestions are welcome !

EDIT 1: Package includes icons
EDIT 2: Should work on Mac... I hope! Thank you Thomthom & Edson for the tests!
EDIT 3: V1.1 New encapsulation, folder added, bug resolved (thank you Thomthom), supports organizer. Will try to do a tool which works like native line tool. With VCB.

Dear Matthieu,

Thank you for the script. Up until now I have had to use the protractor to set the angle before drawing a line. A nice icon combining the pencil icon and the protractor icon would be nice too.

Kind regards,
Bob

Dear Matthieu,

First, thank you for making the icon. As we say in the UK, it is just the ticket.

I have no means of opening a .rar file, so could you post it as a .zip file?

Kind regards,
Bob

PS Can anyone recommend a program for opening .rar files?

winrar would be the best option.. but u could always go for the free 7zip extractor

In the rar file your have three files (two icons and the script). Just copy the three files in the plugins folder. Don't make any folder ! ;)

Wow! We'll need a better interface to manage all these plugins. Another SU7 wish list item. Thank you Matthieu!

Yep. you also can manage these plugins yourself... this is what i do.... For the moment i hope !!

In another post, an improvent has been asked...
a rotation of the line after creation.
Like that :

What do you think about that ?
Because I don't want this plugin become too complicated :(

More update ideas: perhaps an option to draw the line on the plane of a selected face? it would make drawing weird lines a lot easier.

And a little thing, could you update your first post with the .rar version of the script?

Cheers for the useful script none the less :thumb:

Dear Matthieu,

Perhaps I'm being a little dense, but why would you want to rotate the line after creation?

Is the line copied first and then rotated?

Regards,
Bob

Why not, but give an angle depending on what Trigonometric origin?
Originally trigonometric drawing or side of the longest edge of the selected face ?

watkins wrote:Perhaps I'm being a little dense, but why would you want to rotate the line after creation?

To creat a 3d polarline ! I think it's too complicated (not to develop, but calculate two angles in two different 2d plans). Or easier to rotate yourself after line creation.

Salut Matt

Je pensais aux autres systèmes de coordonnées ( cylindrique, polaire )
Un maillage polaire au sens cartographique par exemple...

Merci de ton attention

Translation:
I thought to polar grid like the one found on maps.

Matt:

1st. Thanks!

2nd. Seems to have a problem. I typed in " 100' " and it drew a line 8'4".

Perhaps the ' character is the problem?

sorry, but it does not work for me on mac.

i click on the icon, it asks me to specify the first point, which i do. then a dialogue box appears for me to enter the length and the angle. i do do that and click OK. nothing happens!

what else should i do? any ideas?
