Agreed. Like an "Open Source Project" Section here on the forum. There is a whole lot of good codes and objects scattered all over the forum. Also a lot of brilliant GDL Kungfu fighters. Like you Seneca, Heimo, SinceV6, Runxel, Podolsky, Yves and others. Perhaps we could start with a poll to select a good initial pilot project.

(Personally, I would start with a proper Road Tool Object. Taking the brilliant object developed by Heimo (The one with the 2d sloping diagram) and giving it more flexibility in terms of real life road designs.)

What do you think?

We can just open a new thread and start pumping there any ideas. I'm thinking for example from describing ideas with UI sketches. Discuss sketches, and based on made decisions to write UI code first (without any 3D or 2D). After write 3D and 2D parts. Different people can write different parts, or improve parts of the code.

Let me come back soon with something about it more solid. Maybe tomorrow.

Isn't constantly changing code better dealt with on GitHub or something like that? I think Lucas (runxel) already does that. If each object starts a new thread here, it might quickly become very messy.

Yes. Perhaps GitHub is the place. I never used it... Its time for the old dog learn a new trick.

I'm curios who are the unreal people?

you're not implying that twitter is full of bots 😉

Some of these look really useful!

 

I was particularly interested in Locator LX. I'm trying to build a GDL object which creates a 3D level symbol with a label, but it looks like you have already done something like it!

 

This is what I'm trying to create:

I model terrains for my buildings. Here in Wales, almost none of my sites are flat, so gradients, ramps, steps etc are found on most of my projects. I like to modify the mesh in 3D, and I create a lot of sheets with 3D views. The ability to add 3D levels would be really useful.

 

I'm a complete novice with GDL (or was before I started this) and this is my current progress:

There is a lot of work still to do, but it looks like it will be a lot easier to modify your object.

 

It doesn't display in 2D at all (even before I changed anything) and I'm struggling to get the 3d text to display as well.

 

Any ideas?
