I created a frame to place around windows with a molding made from a complex profile, but once I save it as an object and place my object in the plan, if I give a measurement, it's original measurements of the molding changes and distorts, I know now that I have to make the object "smart" but It's confusing and I don't know how to do this,
Can anybody help me with this please?
I would suggest that if you want an editable object you use PROFILER (the add-on) instead of complex profiles. Complex profiles add way too much senseless code to the resulting part...
In PROFILER, you have the same profile and will have a SQUARE (polyline) as the PATH. Once you open up the .gsm, you will be able to identify which number relate to the path and which relate to the profile. (use the gdl reference pdf in the help menu of AC for more info)
Simply replace the path nodes with VARIABLES. Most likely you will want the PATH to match the window opening.... so you identify the INSIDE of your profile as the point of extrusion. Then when you type in A & B on your part, they can match the window opening size.
Profiler will builld the object laying down, so you'll also have to include a rotx 90 at the beginning.
It is really easy to do (but seemingly hard to explain).... If you make a module of the PROFILE as a fill (copy the one out of your complex profile) and email it to me, I can whip up...
I looked for the old Profiler also.
Kinda says there is a link there, but when it takes
you to downloads, no link is found.
Anybody with a windows version?
It could be sent to email@example.com
if you don't want to post it here.
Or any other info on how to get it would be great.
Since it is no longer on web, I'm sure it would be
a huge waste of time to bug G.S.
I took a look at dvd and did a "explore" of the 12 dvd, but did not find
any goodies on it.
Did I miss something?
