Loads Bitmaps in the active document bitmapTable (there’s some nasty bitmapTable related things MIA [R5] but fixed [R6]).
Informs you about the loaded images related stuff.
Places bitmaps in 3 modes/ways: (3.1) as traceImage, (3.2) as wallpaper and (3.3) as a surface with material (from the bitmap) [set View to Rendered] … using a preview Rectangle3d (derived from a plane and X/Y intervals) .
Shown the 3 options as above placed simultanuesly (trace (white), wallpaper (me), surface (blue):
I’ll add some “tracker” (a special attribute at baking time) for the option 3 (in order to clear the placed surfaces at once) and some X(red)/Y(green) visual indication for that preview Rectangle3d (as it is is rather confusing: where are the X/Y axis ???)
Thanks but keep in mind that I’m 100% a Bentely Systems man (ProjectWise [Google that one], AECOSim, Microstation Connect, Generative Components and lot’s of AEC oriented Bentely verticals).
BTW: In a few minutes the V1B would be ready: it adds my number (666) as string attribute to any placed [baked] Surface with material (option 3) and then … you can clear them at once based on a Querry searching for any doc object with that magic string.
Look, the group that I’ve invited you is not platform exclusive, actually it’s open to what ever platform you like to use platform as long as what you show or share or collaborate is about algorithmic design, cause what is important is the process, and it’s spam free
OK but … keep in mind that my view on the whole parametric/algorithic/whatever thingy is NOT what you expect/wish/hope to hear. In 5 “layers”/stages/phases involved in real-life AEC BIM driven designs comes last (if used at all, truth to be said).
BTW: Since I hate Facebook and any social media thingy how one can join the group whitout a F account? (not in a million years).
Well actually you have just provided something to me that I didn’t expect to get it in such a small amount of time. I have even started to watch C# tutorials to try to understand the file you have sent me.
Besides, I understand FB groups and how bad they’re (many lack the ability of reasoning), that’s why I have written the Group’s rules, and many of them have been already banned without contemplation.
And I don’t know how you can participate without joining FB, sorry
Anyway, if you changed your mind you’re more than welcomed
Jokes apart if you have future plans to become an AEC pro C# is the only way (just add the forthcoming AI revolution to understand that colossal changes in everything known to man are under way [wait … in fact … they are already here] ).
Other than these … and speaking about the parametric thingy: in the old days - at dawn of Time - I was smoke (prior to beta phase) testing Generative Components. My partners gathered around a state of the art H/P XW8000 workstation (now: a piece of #%#) and said: WOW that is the next big thing known to man. I said: why? They said: are you blind? I said: I see blind people here but not me among them.
A million years after that talking parterns gathered again: Dear Lord … how you were able to predict what would happen? I said: seeing future is the esiest of things provided that you can tolerate on resolution matters.
