    Circle tangent to three lines

    Random Transform is also helpful if you don't already have it as well: random_trans.zip

    Circle tangent to three lines

    Found it on my back-up hard drive. Here it is for anyone else who may need it. Tested and working in V8.6 and 9. arc_tlines.zip
  3. I can't find this tool anymore and I don't remember the real name for it. Was it a script, or a plug in? Where can scripts be downloaded from ADS currently?

    fZ + Python + CO2

    I’m envious. Looks like a lot of fun to be had!
  5. I use the scale tool in a side view to achieve this. It should also be possible to show controls and then adjust the height of the wire helix Or to enter an exact height in the data field. I don’t have access to check at the moment.
  6. I think what you are suggesting would be a cool feature! There is an image tab in the hatch options palette but I haven’t been able to figure out how to get it to load an image. One nice thing about the hatch feature is that the .pat hatching is converted to vector lines in HL.
  7. Select the object or objects you would like to have hatches show in the clipping plane. In Tool Options Palette choose the Cross Section Tab. Open the Hatch Palette and drag the desired Hatch from it into the Selected Hatch Option box. It should show a plus-sign cursor and assign that hatch. Note in the attached images that while an object is selected, the hatch in the cross section does not show up. Hope this is what you were describing and that this helps. Oh, and be sure that Show Hatches is checked in the Display Options for each of the display modes you want it to show with; Wireframe, Shaded Work, Shaded Full, and Hidden Line.
  8. I use this often, and I usually create a "Master layer" which has all the other layers contained within so that all the layers in the project get the override with only one box to click. A key sct for that would be useful, but tricky to implement due to multiple layers. Perhaps a key sct would trigger all layers' Material Overrides at the same time? An alternative solution would be to have Material Override Attribute show up in the Contextual menu when you right click on a specific layer the way that Select All Objects On Layer is specific to the layer clicked on.

    Beginning Hiccups

    I ran "python ––version" in Terminal and it returned this: and then I downloaded Python 2.7.18, ran the installer. It created a Python folder with this in my Applications folder: So it looks like I have 2.7 in /Library/Frameworks but the No module named cube2 is still displayed when I run the cube2py script. Is the 2.7 enough 2.7.? or do I need to get the 2.7.18 installed and how?
  11. Just starting. I don't know what I'm doing at all. Using a Mac 10.11.6 so Python should be installed right? (how can I find out which version of Python is installed?) I ran "cube.py" utility from the Extensions menu and I got this error msg: I thought there may be a permissions error so I moved the script to the desktop and got the same error message implying that it was trying to open the same file, not the one on the desktop so I renamed the one on the desktop to cube2.py retried and then got this msg: ...and no .pyc file was created. What is going wrong here?

    Independent window

    I use scenes for this. And I have those scenes saved in my template file so they are available in every project I work on. Typically: Full Screen, 2K x 4K, 4K x 8K, 4Ksq, 8Ksq and 2:2.35 feature film format as well. If you create a new window and then click on one of these, your window will be good to go.
  14. Justin +1 I prefer the previous implementation.

    Palette Dock scroll bar

    It's going to take some getting used to the Tool options palette shifting all the other palettes up and down as it expands and contracts to fit the options of the chosen tool, but with my growing collection of dinosaur-unreliable-mini-failing-trackball apple mice, scrolling works lovely as long as I haven't stacked too many pallets on the side dock.
