I have written my first blender script!
It’s nothing fancy. I needed to be able to measure the area of all selected faces in a mesh and macouno’s measure mesh script has some issues with the latest version. I didn’t get into the trouble of modyfying his script for it looked a bit scary for my newbie skills :eyebrowlift:
It can be found in the misc section and:
- if you are in edit mode, hitting the area button will give you the total area of all faces selected.
- if you are in object mode, hitting the area button will give you the total area of all faces on the selected mesh.That’s all for now. I hope this proves usefull to someone other than me :). If you have any suggestions please tell me. Since i cannot post attachements (?) here is the script:
#!BPY """ Name: 'Face Area' Blender: 245 Group: 'Misc' Tooltip: 'Measure the area of the selected faces' """ import Blender as B global total_area total_area = 0.0 def calcArea(): in_edit = B.Window.EditMode() if in_edit: B.Window.EditMode(0) objects = B.Object.GetSelected(); obj = objects me = obj.getData(mesh=True) faces = me.faces global total_area total_area = 0.0 for f in faces: if in_edit: if f.sel: total_area += f.area else: total_area +=f.area if in_edit: B.Window.EditMode(1) def gui(): B.Draw.Button("AREA", 1, 10, 10, 60, 20, "Measure your currently selected object") B.BGL.glRasterPos2d(80, 15) B.Draw.Text(str(total_area)) def bevent(evt): if evt == 1 : calcArea() B.Draw.Redraw(1) print total_area B.Draw.Register(gui,None,bevent)
