generative modeling for Rhino
Hi David, hi all,
I'd like to share an idea for a new special parameter component - the rotating knob:
I imagine it would have the following settings:
start - value at "0:00" (default = 0)
end - value at "12:00" (default = 1 or 2Pi)
min - minimum possible value (default = start)
max - maximum possible value (default = end)
loopcount - boolean (default = false)
infinite - boolean (default = false), if true then min & max obsolete
+ the usual slider settings (rounding, digits...)
start=0, end=1023, min=0, max=1023, loopcount=false, infinite=false
same as typical slider, but with circular motion
start=0, end=2Pi, min=0, max=N*2Pi, loopcount=true, inifinte=false
intuitive control over "winding" count
c) spinning wheel
start=0, end=2Pi, min=null, max=null, loopcount=false, infinite=true
useful for continuous (no stopping on the end-start seam) angle picking
What do you think?
forgive my bluntness, but I've gotta fealing you've got to fight for attention since the general discussion forum is so popular nowadays ;-)
btw. maybe the errors&bugs section would be more suitable for posts like this? (errors,bugs&suggestions?)
awesome! thanks very much!
that is awesone.
Can we change the color or name them?
May I request "initialization code" (pop-up) ? Like "o10<10.2<11"
Awesome! Can't wait to see it implemented.
Can I request for "lock (freeze) location" option to avoid incidental dragging?
Nice, now I can make Batman's Decoder like he has in Arkham City!
It's not angles. It's like a cyclical slider. You pick the amount of values for a full turn and also set a minimum and maximum.
Presumably it will have an "expression" like the slider in which you can change the behaviour.
