Python counter give wrong result


can somone explain why the counter in python give me a wrong result?
I try to find all identical curve endpoints and inserted ones , grasshopper with sets gives me the correct result but counter hm…?

if i use distance it work.

for i in y:
    r = []
    for j in P:
        if rh.Geometry.Point3d.DistanceToSquared(i,j) < 0.1:
    print len(r)

Hi Florian,

Looks like a floating point equality thing - the points you are creating may differ in coordinates by some tiny fraction.

Checking the distance with a tolerance as per your second post is the right way to do this.

Hi Florian,

I’m not sure if I correctly understand, what you’re trying to achieve, but here’s a script of mine that sorts lines by connections to points. It only works with lines, but that poses no problem with your example file!
It also shatters lines that are intersected by points, at parameters other than their end points.


import Rhino.Geometry as rg
from ghpythonlib import treehelpers

def split_line(line, params):
    """Splits a line at a series of specified parameters.
      line (Rhino.Geometry.Line): A line to trim.
      params (list): A list of parameters, where each parameter 
        must be within the line domain from 0.0 to 1.0.
      The new line segments.
    if 0.0 not in params:
    if 1.0 not in params:
    params = sorted(list(set(params)))
    line_segs = []
    for i in xrange(len(params)-1):
        curr_pt = line.PointAt(params[i])
        next_pt = line.PointAt(params[i+1])
        if curr_pt.DistanceTo(next_pt) > 0.01:
            line_segs.append(rg.Line(curr_pt, next_pt))
    return line_segs

# Shatter the lines that intersect points other than their end points
shattered_lines = []
for i in xrange(len(Lines)):
    params = [] # parameters to split the line at
    for j in xrange(len(Points)):
        if Points[j].DistanceTo(Lines[i].From) < 0.01 or \
           Points[j].DistanceTo(Lines[i].To) < 0.01:
            # Point equals one of the line end points
            closest_t = Lines[i].ClosestParameter(Points[j])
            closest_pt = Lines[i].PointAt(closest_t)
            if Points[j].DistanceTo(closest_pt) < 0.01:
                # Point intersects the line
    if len(params) > 0:
        # Shatter the line into segments
        segments = split_line(Lines[i], params)

# Get the indices of lines connected to each point
connected = []
for i in xrange(len(Points)):
    conns = []
    for j in xrange(len(shattered_lines)):
        if Points[i].DistanceTo(shattered_lines[j].From) < 0.01 or \
           Points[i].DistanceTo(shattered_lines[j].To) < 0.01:
            # Point equals one of the line end points

# Get the lines connected to each point
conn_lines = [[shattered_lines[i] for i in c] for c in connected]

# Outputs
a = treehelpers.list_to_tree(conn_lines) 

The script outputs a tree of lines. Each tree branch corresponds to one of the points, in the exact same order as the input points, and includes all lines connected by one of their end points. (17.2 KB)

Many thanks for your script.

The goal is to fix this construction at the ceiling.
The points are the suspension points and i try to write a script to calculate the weight on each suspension point.
