The video explains:
- why this is needed
- using _Flow as a workaround
- why _Flow isn’t ideal
- the request
We’d like to substitute geometry (point, line, planar srf) when a commmand asks for one, two or thee physical reference locations. For example, Copy asks for two single point locations (from and to). You would be able to substitute one or two ref point objects, then have history trigger if the ref obj moves.
I realize there are a lot of commands. These are highest on my wish list:
Single point location/Point Obj
- _Loft _Point
2 point locations/Line Obj
3 point locations/PlanarSrf
- _Mirror _3point
- _Orient3D (with scaling)
I’d love to have _Copy(_Point, _Point), _Orient(_Line), _Mirror(_Line) as well, but will happily get by using a plane with _Orient3D and _Mirror _3point.
We spend all day putting stones into space, and then mating objects (prongs, cutters, bezels, etc) to them. Blocks can only take you so far, because the mating objects do not scale uniformly with the stones.
