Would be nice if we could type in simple equations instead of hard numbers for gumball transforms and in command parameters
Hi Ryan- you can do this at the command line but not in the gumball, though I imagine that is not impossible to implement either. To make calculations on the command line, use the format
=(equation in here)
e.g. Line 0 =(3.1278*4.25)
this will constrain the line length to whatever 3.1278*4.25 is. Is that what you are looking for? This is a python thing, so the very first time you do it in a session it takes a while to kick in while Python gets loaded into memory.
yes that’s it…
hrmm is there a technical reason for the extra keystrokes? Could this not be made to work sans () and =?
I mean… unless you needed the () for order of operations inside your equation. But they could be optional, no?
