Some of these patterns were removed from the default because you can easily create them, and generate a file with your desired patterns. Note that the Hex pattern was added to the default list since we get lots of questions about how to generate… Use ptManage2DPatterns to create the pattern.
I generated 3 pattern for you and saved to a file using ptSave2DPatterns command. you can use ptLoad2DPatterns command to load them. Let me know if anything is not clear. All commands and their options are explained in the Manual. 2DPanelingPatterns.txt (1.2 KB)
Really need help! Now I deleted the panelingtools plugin in the 3 places I found it and reinstalled but the grid pattern option is still gone. I also tried to make my own pattern and that dont work either!
What can I do to get a working PanelingTools?
Nevermind… Wiped my whole system from everything of PanelingTools and reinstalled and now I got the basic patterns back.
But would really like the extended patterns already installed with the plugin!
Cant understand why they are not included… Afraid that, if I make my own pattern the original will be deleted…
Depends on a couple things. Are you outputting curves? Do you have a base surface to trim against?
You might be able to create a slightly bigger grid then trim, or create a separate pattern for the ends.
If you share your example, I might be able to help more.
