    Tech got a reaction from ¢hris £und in form•Z Viewer first flight   
    For many years we have had requests for a viewer app for form•Z files on a laptop or desktop computer. form•Z Viewer is a new app based on the v9 interface. More mature than a beta, but its never been out in the wild. Please let us know what you think!

    How I use Example 1:  this is still a WIP, but should suffice as a concrete example.


     
    Will stop pestering all of you now.

    Example 2, without directions, as hopefully, it is now clear what the script is for.
     
    Here is a real world example. of matching a volume to a pre-specified volume via the UI.
    Was given the requirement that the balloon have a specific Volume.  Enough to carry the weight of the basket, passengers, and the balloon itself.   But not so big, that it became cost prohibitive to build.   The actual volume was provided.   (I used the same math to figure this out, as the script did not exist 15 years ago, but planted the seed for the script)
     

     
    Other Balloons for the same client, only Sylvester got built, albeit pupils in the wrong spot, and he decided not to put the tongue on.

    Example Usage 1.
    Intake/Exhaust using Cross sections to generate final object.  
    Here is the final object.

    This object has the same cross section throughout, regardless of the cross section shape. Except the final rectangle, it is reduced 75% of the intake (cropped circle).
    The Following is how I built it using the Match Script.
    First I created the rough source shapes, with no regard to their areas, and placed them roughly where I wanted them.   There are 3 circles in the center, to help the loft tool maintain the desired cross section (can get a little wonky when changing shape types. it will bulge if only 2 circles are used.)

    Making sure the master shape is the last one created, I cut and paste one of the intake shapes (again, the cropped circle)
    Select all the objects I want to scale to the same area as the intake (all except the last of exhaust rectangles, I am saving that for another operation)
    Launch the script from the Extensions/Run Utility Menu
    Select Topology/surface. scale 1.0

    Click OK.
    Areas of the 6 objects now match the intake.
     
    I repeat the process again, but this time only select the intake cross (it is still the last object created) section and the final exhaust port cross section.
    Run the script again and change the following settings:  Topology/Surface.   and Scale to .75

    Click OK.

    Select the cross sections in order and apply the loft tool.

     
    more advanced examples.
