(Meta-Androcto) #1

Does this work close to Modo profiles feature?
Imho, being able to create and store cutom profiles, and extrude them along a path ( curves, edges ) could help in archviz modeling and other field.

I’ve used Modo and found this useful.
Have to use more blender so I don’t really know if there is yet such a feature.
Blender is awesome.

I placed folder to my user add-on folder (as usual), but I can’t see it in a blender add-on list to activate it.
Or how does it works? Thanks

hi, just put the folder add_mesh_edge_profiles in your addons folder,
enable in user prefs, run in add_mesh menu

@Meta: thanks, but can’t confirm under OS X. Addon is not appearing on the list, so nothing to activate. Sorry.

For now (until he replies) it seems you have to download all the python scripts from here
http://blenderpython.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/blenderpython/scripts_library/scripts/addons_extern/add_mesh_edge_profiles/
then put them in a folder called add_mesh_edge_profiles then put them in the blender/addons folder.

hi,
If you use 7zip, unpack the files twice.
then put the folder called add_mesh_edge_profiles in the blender/addons folder.
sorry for strange format, .tar.gz is a widely used format, just not as usual as .zip .rar or .7zip
it’s what sourceforge automattically builds for downloads.

I didnt know you could do it on windows, thought it was a linux only format.

I could open the first .tar.gz folder with extract now, but then inside that is the same file again .tar.gz with no file association. i`ll have a play later thanks

hi,
start with the .tar.gz, do an extract here, then you should have a .tar, do an extract here on the .tar to get the folder.

hi this script no longer works or is supported, basically it was an add object script with no tweakable parameters. All Objects were made with mesh_extra_tools edge fillet plus (in addons_contrib)

Hello my friend

I think you’ve done a great job with version 1.2 Laboratory and really I’m very grateful for that.

My English is not very good, but try to explicarmete respect to a question that has arisen me reading your User Guide version 1.2.

In chapter Measures and landmarks
In Point 1 (1 Head-width_X. From the iliocristale to crotch, projected on Z axis).
I think there may be an error in the landmarks mention (From the iliocristale to crotch).

Please could you explain about it.

I thank you again for your great work and the answer you’re willing to give me in relation to my question.

not much going on here really, just a nice set of profiles for extrusion.
only a mesh is created, you’ll need to convert to curve yourself. they all work great as curve bevel objects.

Yes thanks, i walk around the theme now…Byebye Meta-Androcto.
Have a nice evening! :wink:

EDIT: Hi Meta-Androcto,

i have understood, it’s a bug because you use the old release of creaprim to create the Add_Edge_profile addons.
Paleajed give me now the new creaprim addon and i will create again new profiles…
