algorithmic modeling for Rhino

WISH: Detaching a plugged wire to reconnect it to another input.

It would nice if one could press a specific key and click on an input in order to detach a wire and reconnect it to another input. There might also be a tab saying reconnect below disconnect? I hope this makes sense and that someone else finds it useful. wdyt?

Hey Arthur, not sure if this is what you want to do but did you try to hold Ctrl+Shift while reattaching wires from one in/output to another ?

Oh perfect! Thanks a lot Adam :)

There is, so far I know, the ctrl-shift combination for this task. But this moves all of the wires that come into a input. I do not know if there is anything if you want to move only one specific wire out of many.

Hm. Adam was faster...

Thanks Hrvoje,  ctrl+shift worked well!

Is there a way to do ctrl+shift+'another key' to copy the wire when reconnecting it instead of detaching the original one? That would be very useful too.


It should be Ctrl+Shift+Drag and then RightMouseClick to create a copy. It works for regular drags but not ctrl+shift drags, I'll try and add that feature for the next release.

Brilliant! Thanks a lot David.

Sorry to dig out this old thread I googled up, but how is your thinking on adding the copy functionality to ctrl+shift drags?

It would be nice if this could work backwards as well. I am working on a pretty large definition right now where I sometimes create geometry that then needs to be added to a component far away near the end of the definition. Say I already have this end component connected somewhere near to where I'm working, it would be nice If I could copy that wire (or wires with ctrl+shift) to the output box of my new geometry.

Ctrl+Shift Drag tap RMB still doesn't work.

What I do for large distances is to copy the component with all the wires connected at location A navigate the Canvas to Location B and use Ctrl+Shit+V to insert the copied component at the middle of the screen. Then I use Ctrl+Shift Drag to hook up the wires to the intended component and delete the copied one.

Yeah, I do that, too.
