Been learning Python though automating some of the tasks we do in the office on the project I am on, and would like to give the tools to the rest of the team.
Worked how how to write a simple script for moving Geometry up and down the shift vector but if Esc is pressed part way though the process it runs to the end and returns an Error. I have read up on Event Handling/Checking if escape been pressed but can’t get it to notice this when I run the code.
Current Code is below I someone could give me some pointers.
import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs import RhinoPython.Host as __host #Shift Model from Acad Origin to Rhino Origin or visa versa. acadOrigin = (5100,55370,0) rhOrigin = (0,0,0) #check for esc press def escape_test( throw_exception=True, reset=False ): "Tests to see if the user has pressed the escape key" rc = __host.EscapePressed(reset) if rc and throw_exception: raise Exception('escape key pressed') return rc def moveMTC (): objs = rs.GetObjects('Select Objects to Move',0,True,True) strDir = rs.GetString('Select Direction','Import',['Import', 'Export']) if strDir == 'Import': shiftVec = rs.VectorCreate(rhOrigin,acadOrigin) else: shiftVec = rs.VectorCreate(acadOrigin,rhOrigin) m_objs = rs.MoveObjects(objs,shiftVec) rs.SelectObject(m_objs) if m_objs: rs.ZoomSelected(None,True) rs.UnselectObjects(m_objs) if __name__=="__main__": moveMTC()
