After testing out the script from Tim_LIVID's thread in the polygon forum, I decided to write my own polyhedron/geosphere MEL script. The version posted in that thread works ok, but it only creates shapes using centimeters. I regularly work with meters as my linear units, so the shapes always showed up very very very small. Also, I happened to be going through the icosahedron tutorial in David Stripinis's book "The MEL Companion".
So, after a lot of hacking away in my text editor, I finally finished dnPolyhedron.mel
. Here are a couple of screenies:
It's derived heavily from the sources mentioned above, but I did make some changes to how things are handled. The biggest change was getting it work in any linear unit scale. Also, the script is contained in a single file and does not have a large image in the window (like in GeoSphere.mel).
You can download the script here:
If you do end up testing it out, let me know how it works and if you find any bugs.
