Hi, I am trying to create a simple python script where I would like to have points moving through space given certain rules.
I am running a “for i in range loop”, given the number of step my points have to go through, and I am performing all the operations during each step with enable redraw = false.
At the end of each step I am
enabling the redraw to show only the new positions plus a trail,
pausing the loop with a time.sleep(n-seconds)
disabling the redraw
running the loop again.
The problem is that sometimes, even if it should show what is happening-pause-run again, the redraw just shuts off and the script run until the last loop and then shows the final results.
The only way I found at the moment to keep him working a bit longer is adding a gc.collect(), but I was wondering if there are other way to clean the rhino cache as well (provided it is that that disable the preview of what is happening), or anyway clear garbage data that is piling at each step.
Just to recap the structure would be:
for a certain number of steps
perform some operations
show the results
pause/clear the garbage
hide the visualisation
Thanks in advance
