Section and Paneling tools on WIP



Are Section and Paneling tools available for the WIP ?

(John Brock) #2

No plug-ins are being built and distributed publically until the Software Development Kit is “frozen”. With each WIP, the SDK changes which breaks all the existing plug-ins built using the previous SDK.


Will these plugins be included in the v6?

Hi @enzo_molinari
Yes, both will be available to use with V6.


Thank you @rajaa.


@rajaa, Do I have to install Section and Panelign tool or are they incuded on the new v6?

(Rajaa Issa) #9

You still have to install them for Rhino 6. Here is the installer and updated documentation. Let me know if there is anything missing.


Thank you!

Hi Rajaa,

Am I correct to state there is no way to use paneling tools in Python scripts?
I did find some info on a rhinoscript API but not on python. Or might there be a way to call PT functionality in python? I’m willing to go through hoops yet I have no clue where to start.

This works in Rhino 6, (I didn’t check Rhino 5).
I plugged the following(taken from link below), into a GH python component and it worked fine.

# sample script to show how to import PanelingTools and use with Python
import math
import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs

#Add these 3 lines to import PanelingTools library
import clr
import PanelingTools as pt

pts = []
#divide input curve and assign result to output # Get the curve objects
if rs.IsCurve(x):
  arrPoints = pt.Utility.DivideCurveByChordLength(rs.coercecurve(x), 1, True,)
  for pt in arrPoints:

Hi Chanley,

Great that will get me going.
