Param-o - Changing GDL object parameters

dushyant

Hello,
When a GDL object like a chair is imported in Param-o, is there a way to edit the surface of the individual parts like arms, back-rest fabric, etc. which are available for editing in the object-settings when the object is normally edited outside Param-o?
I could find parameters like 'Backrest style' in the list of available params for A, B, C, D (screenshot attached). I don't know how it is possible to edit / set a new value to it, as A, B, C, D only take numeral values.. I tried setting the value to different numbers like 2, 3.. assuming it would match with the order of the values available for the given parameter, but it doesn't effect any change.

Anyone any idea?
Thanks.

Also, what if we need to edit more than 4 parameters of a GDL object? (There are currently only 4 slots available: A, B, C, D)

Hi,

the documentation says it's an experimental feature, I will forward these feedbacks to the developers.
You could try using GDL shape with a call command.

gs_back_type_m is an integer parameter. You will have to find which value is which style in the code of Office Chair 06, which calls officeChair_m.

Ok, thanks.

I hope Param-O can also be used to parameterize both doors and windows, according to local standards.
