Hi all, I am trying to make a dynamic Height-Annotation-Block.
It consists of three elements, a symbol, a point(block original point) and textfield showing the Z coordinate value of the point.
I want to achieve when I copy the block to somewhere else it can dynamiclly reference itself not the original one.
Or do I miss any easier way to do that in Rhino without Grasshopper.
ps. I wonder is there a way to retrieve block original coordinate value as an attribute?
I think you need to build this once and derive the z hight from the point coordinent in user text. The save as a block and you can copy.
This is the syntax from the help file.
Displays the World XYZ coordinates of a selected point object.
The XYZ axes can be enabled respectively.
my guess - this is not possible with a block definition and text fields.
it would be possible if PointCoordinate could be linked to the blocks insert point - but as far as I see - this is currently not possible.
(it would be possible with a plug-in that supports a custom rhinoDocObject / Annotation or it might be possible with a plugin like Rhenso)
Will give it a try with the new gh rhino componnents
hi camelworks, thank you for the reply!
the problem I have with gh is I need to bake the text component to see the height.
check out the gh file
if you have better solution, please let me know!
(it needs elefront)
