    for pt in points:
    file.write ( "\n" )
    elif( rs.IsPoint(id) ):

    hi, any idea how to write this script?

  • 1. Arrow.111 (Jul 16, 2011 22.46):

    Hi dear people,
    I need help to convert *.3dm Rhono drawing polyline to DAT file X,Y coordinates.
    Is there anybody how can help me with creation of such script. I have dome it in LISP for Autocad but unfortunately I don’t know the VB to create the relevant script.
    Here is the video to show how my script woring in Cad.
    Script iz activating by the word - scan
    1 stage- its asking to enter the path and the file name without extension: Enter
    2. stage - its asking "do you need to set cross points to polyline Y/N? by default N":Enter
    3. stage - its asking "select the Line/Spline/Pline to create dat file":Enter
    4. stage - its asking to enter the number of dots that Line/Spline/Pline must be divided( by default 260)":Enter
    5. stage - its asking "do you prefer to divert the path direction of dots dividing(CW, Anty CW) by default NO":Enter
    6. stage - its asking "Do you prefer to NORMALISE the scale as additional task form 0.0-1.0? by default scale is 1.0":Enter
    7. Press Enter to conform dat file creation or ESC:
    In the result I am getting the coordinates like this:
    1 0
    0.99968708 -0.00977171
    0.99937416 -0.01954343
    0.99906125 -0.02931514
    0.99874833 -0.03908685
    0.99843541 -0.04885857
    0.99812249 -0.05863028
    0.99780957 -0.068402
    0.99749666 -0.07817371
    0.99718374 -0.08794542
    Sorry for my pure English people, I am trying to do my best:)
    Please contact me by skype (arrow.111) if you have possibility to help me with the relevant script writing but for Rhino. I will share my LISP script to anyone fro you with the grate pleasure.

    Regards & truly,
