Here are a few things to make the vaSpace tool fancier:
Rotateable tags! Not having this renders it useless in any view other than ‘world’ cplane.
When created from a curve, it should remember from which curve, so a vaUpdate will… update it to the changed curve.
Even better: why not add edit points to the space, like e.g. a slab has? Including height!
If the space would update immediately when it’s perimeter is edited, it would make it perfect tool for quick area / volume studies.
Sidenote: I’m looking for the best way to display text showing a closed curve’s area next to it, like so:
…which update immediately after the curve/volume is changed!
These areas/volumes should then be listable in a table (Used Revit for the job, but hey).
‘Text fields’ are the only working solution for now, and R7 WIP has also volume now, but it’s a hassle to edit, since curve and volume have to be dragged along together.
vaSpaces would be the ideal candidate!
Even tried vaElements / vaAnnotations with Grasshopper, but they suffer from the fact that the original curve has to be picked again after each change.
Scaling a space created from curves changes it’s size, but the values (area etc.) do not update correctly.
Spaces from curves have 2.7m default height. It’s unclear to me where this comes from, or how it can be changed.
