Bringing this topic forward to Rhino V6…
Now that history is enabled by default for dimensions created in Rhino, I have a need to generate (lots of) dimensions between two point entities. I am using Grasshopper for my design work but have found that in V6 the dimensions created by Grasshopper do not have the same associative behavior as dimensions created in Rhino. I would love to hear of a way to create dimensions in Grasshopper (and bake them) to have the history functionality respected, if it exists.
I am investigating whether a script of some sort would be possible to create these dimensions with history functionality. @dale, could you explain your comment of “History recording is command-based. Thus, you are (most likely) going to want to do this in a plug-in.” for someone who is not well versed in programming and bring the explanation up to current V6 levels?
I tried using simple command-line based scripts but the selection of the points to create dimensions seem to need a definitive mouse based click selection of the point(s), such that I can’t seem to make use of select commands part way through the dimension command.
Thanks in advance to any contributors!
