Feature Request: Export Segments Size [x,y,z]
« on: July 25, 2014, 10:31:02 AM »
Sometimes it would be useful to export segments dimensions and plug them in to arithmetic operator for further transformations.
Is there a way to do it now, if not I would like this to be added.

If that helps, with the new "Fixed Size" feature you can define the size of a segment. All dimensions are exportable, and it's available both in the Segment and Transform nodes.

I don`t yet see how that could be helpful...
I`m creating pavement styles, and want to be able to change one brick (length and width are independent to each other) and update the pattern based on expressions.

It's not possible to get the dimensions of a segment, but you would force it to a certain size using a Constant (or Numeric) node + Fixed Size, and then use the value for the expresions.

Yes.  I am really looking forward to this feature of exporting segments dimensions too.
We are working hard in virtual effects in 3DSMAX. Welcome to our website in China.

I guess we could add some specific functions to get values from a Segment (or other objects).
I've added your suggestion to our wishlist.
