Bitmaps_V1A.gh (125.3 KB)
How it works:
- 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):
The info that is available:
The options that you have:
Note: the surfaces are Rhino objects and thus you must remove them manually. There’s bool controls for the other 2 modes.
Note: Do not attempt to use this with Lists of Rectangles. But if you want that ability notify.
