I want to select some points of the polyline to move,but I need to select them by coding instead of mouse selecting . How can I do this?
For example , I get position Y data of the polyline points , then I can get the points that the Y value less than 0 , I am confusing how to ‘select’ the point that I need?
polyline is really just a collection of points
if you need to select vertices that have Y value less than 0 on a polyline you can perhaps try this:
import Rhino.Geometry as rhg
d = rhg.Point3d(0,0,5)
# x is your polyline
selected = [(i,p) for (i,p) in enumerate(x) if p.Y<0]
for i,p in selected:
x[i] += d
This python code will “select” ones with Y values less than 0 and move them up Z-axis 5 units. variable x has been changed.
Thank you for your reply.
I know how to do it in the rough.But it seems doesn’t work,I don’t know what I missed.
Public Function moveBottomPointDown(ByVal sectionOfstCurve As Curve, ByVal doc As RhinoDoc) As Rhino.Geometry.Curve
Dim tmpPolyCurve As PolylineCurve
tmpPolyCurve = sectionOfstCurve.ToPolyline(5, 1, Math.PI, 0.1, 1, 0.1, 0.3, 10, True)
For i = 0 To tmpPolyCurve.PointCount - 1
If tmpPolyCurve.Point(i).Z <= 2.02 Then
Dim xFormMove As Transform
xFormMove = Transform.Translation(0, 0, -2.5)
'It seems doesn't work
is there error message or simply nothing happens?
There is nothing happens.
Base your advise , I picked up the points needed and moved them directly, then regenerated a new polyline.It works.
I am just confused why " tmpPolyCurve.Point(i).Transform(xFormMove) " couldn’t work?
If I have to guess it probably has to do with reference type of data. In this case the vertices on a polyline aren’t through reference. Calling
point.Transform() is supposed to alter a reference type. In this case it doesn’t. Mine is explicitly assigning a new point at the given vertex index.
Just my wildest guess…
