Nesting!!!!
« on: July 05, 2019, 02:34:29 PM »
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D You Guys are nailed with nesting!!!!
I just have the best 2 hours using RC ever!!!
I`m still testing creating parametric windows but so far nesting is working great!
I had some issue with Y Evenly since it broke default and some other stuff so I had to move Default and YEvenly to separate Generators (but since there is nesting this is not a problem any more  ;))

Idea is to make some fully parametric windows driven by Parameters and RC Spline Markers.

So far my Generator is working like "simple" L1S  8) 8) 8) 8)

Parameters:

1. Set number of InnerFrames by Number/Distance or override it with RCSplineMarker - X value for the number of InnerFrames
2. Set Default Ysize for all windows or override it with RCSplineMarker - Y value
   * RCSplineMarker - Z value is custom Bottom Offset for Window
3. Set number of InnerFrames X/Y Evenly subDivision by number/distance (if there is more User Data for RCSpline Markers it will be easy to override this too)...
4. Set % for Windows to be opened (for now just Top nudge  is active) and max value for the angle

More to come!!! Openings on the side, Sliding doors etc, etc, etc ....

THANKS IToo for the great product!!
Best Regards...

Dragan


P.S. not sure if this is a bug, so take a look at the red labelled Generator and try to turn off extra Default & YEvenly generators and then connect Y Evenly/Default node on red Generator.

OK found it.
and try to turn off extra Default & YEvenly generators
 

I can't find these generators in Your style.

Q. during testing.

Please check my open/close Randomize node. I use 100% and Expression to drive the opposite value. But I notice even when I disconnect nodes and enter a value  100<>0 in Randomize node RC will not respect full open/close usage

Your attached scene used 60. And not % but angle of 60.

I don't understand Your <> usage? Technically it reads as "not equal", but i don't get it.

well when using 60 You do randomize from 0 to 60. random values.  please change seed values and some seeds should get closer to 60 degrees than others. Not sure we are talking about the same thing.

Nice to see You get it working. Please understand that Your file is quite complex and it is not easy to find a thing in other people graphs. Please provide more info how to replicate the issue.

Thanks for Your feedback Dragan.

  :) no

I have only one Randomize node with Closed and Opened window connected do the Default.
With this Randomize node, I try to get more control over Open/Close variation.
But even when I disconnect the input parameter nodes and enter value 100% for open and 0% for closed I will not get fully opened windows in the scene...

Well this 100% should not open all windows 100%, but only make all windows open somewhat. I tested in Your scene and all windows become open:

Please try with other Spline
But, on second thought this is not a big issue... just evauleting  is 100% real 100%
