Hi, I would like to create a script whereby I use the volume provided by rhino times user defined density to output either to command line or none modal msgbox eg.


_selAll _volume

_-Runscript (Sub Weight

 Dim Silver  

Dim NineYellow  

Dim NineWhite  

Dim EighteenYellow  

Dim EighteenWhite  

Dim Platinum








End Sub Weight )

I should probably use the script editor, any advice would be appreciated

You might want to take a look at the attached script - perhaps it will give you some ideas. Just drag & drop on a running Rhino and then run "SolidWeight".


I looked at the script this morning and awesome,really appreciated.Works a treat!

Hi- I am loading up a script I wrote a few years ago - re-written for V5.0. It's a bit more complicated then the one Dale F supplied but has some more functionality and is more 'permanent' in capturing information. You need the data file (pfa.ini) for the program to work. Put the data anywhere you want and select the path to that file in Options->Files->SearchPath.
