Hello everyone,

I have a question, coming from a complete beginner in codes and scripting.
I just found a useful tool online, for exporting a curve from the draft angle analysis.
As the kind person even provided a sample code, I at least wanted to try it out, so I was looking for a way to use the code in rhino but I’ve been trying and trying all day for now but I can’t seem to find a way to implement it/use it.
That’s why I’m hoping there to be someone to maybe help me out!
(the tutorial: http://developer.rhino3d.com/guides/cpp/draft-angle-contouring/)

I also don’t know if that’s the right direction already, but I started out with downloading the RhinoSDK and Visual Studio but even after following the instructions from the “first plugin creation” tutorial (http://developer.rhino3d.com/guides/cpp/your-first-plugin-windows/), I start to struggle as it tells me there would be new folders, files and classes generated after executing the Rhino 6 Plug In wizard but I’m left with none as it seems…

I hope someone can help me out as I would really like to try out the code and understand the coding and scripting…

Thanks in advance!!

Have you checked McNeel’s dev github? https://github.com/mcneel/rhino-developer-samples/tree/6/cpp
It’s super useful and quite self-contained.
