Current issue is a new feature in Rhino 6, which automatically rotates annotations. Apparently there is a button in the annotation settings but I can’t get it to work. I don’t want Rhino to rotate any of my annotations. I need certain annotations to be aligned to an edge and the plane required to generate text paired with its orientation would do this perfectly. It also works inside Grasshopper, but as soon as I bake geometry, some flip an rotate.
Someone please tell me how to switch this off. Thanks
I’m using Rhino and Grasshopper to design climbing walls. Before I spend the time and money to 3D print models, I prefer to generate modeling sheets which I can print on paper. Cutting and gluing is some sort of meditation too.
The unrolled models contain metadata such as panel angles, edge lengths and crease angles. Fabtools did the job in Rhino 5, with the ability to unroll text dots together with geometry. However in Rhino 6, Grasshopper doesn’t display text dots as nicely as in Rhino 5. Standard text component in Grasshopper lacks an output. So I’m using Elefront. This sounds like a compromise, however I’m more and more convinced its a leap forward…
What I was struggling with the last 2 days is rs.UnrollSurface with following geometry, since Grasshopper or Python doesn’t output lists. Well, I found a user object but in the end wasn’t satisfied. I end up sorting and filtering data like in most other projects with more than a handful of parts and derived geometry… It’s a huge relief when it finally works…
Huge thank you to @AlanTai of Elefront!
PS: a great improvement for your text component would be an optional setting whether the output should be text, curves, surfaces or solids. Same for the actual Grasshopper text component, it needs an output and choice of type…
Thanks again, everyone
