Bongo recording position data


#1

Hi,
I would so very much like Bongo to record position data of a point (or for many points) as the animation proceeds.

Such data, if generated and saved to file, could then be used for various purposes (G-Code, or feeding Grasshopper, Arduino paths, printers, or whatever).

A special property could be added to points, or introduce a special “TracePoint”, say with the following properties :

  • [ X ] Record Position (Default)

  •  [ X ]  Global coordinates  (Default)
    
  •  [ _ ]  Relative to Start
    
  • [ _ ] Record Direction

  • [ X ] From prev point

  • [ X ] Tangent to prev & next
    Format :

  • [ X ] Vector

  • [ _ ] Degree

  • Tweening

  • [ X ] OFF (Default)

  • [ _ ] ON

  • [ File Name and Path ]

  • [ X ] .csv

  • [ _ ] .json

  • [ _ ] Draw a Polyline along the traveled path (in current drawing)
    (useful for later manual manipulation)

Such information would be so very useful for various use, for analysis and even detecting collisions and… you name it.

In Bongo 3? :innocent:

I’ll add this to the wishlist for Bongo 3.
