    Dang! Looks like a good lineup. I'd go, but I promised my 5-year old we could go bird watching (doesn't that sound like a made-up excuse?). I'm looking forward to the recording though.

    That was very instructive. Thanks @sam_holland, @chadstoltzfus & @richard_doyle !

    My favorite tricks from the meeting:
    • For an efficient top down modeling approach, derive sketches into part studios from a master studio.
    • More configurable variables, place an array inside a variable. Also, place if then statements inside variables.


    Using an array inside a variable






    Using if then statements inside a variable or dimension

    Another interesting part about conditional statements I forgot to mention is you can do a chain of conditional statements the same way you can with FeatureScript if/else statements. 

    If we wanted this
    if(condition1)<br>{<br>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;doThis1<br>}
    else if(condition2)
    {
         doThis2
    }
    else
    {
         doThis3
    }

    it would look like condition1 ? doThis1 : condition2 ? doThis2 : doThis3

    Ah, I was wondering how to do that.

    I had to place the second statement in parenthesis for it to work. Like this:  (count == 0? 2 : (count == 4? 10 : 1))

    definitely need to hit up the recording. @richard_doyle do you know if/when it'll be posted?

    It's ready, but I still don't have a great place to post the recordings. I can share them via Google Drive. Please send me an email ([email protected]) with the email address you would like to use to receive the share notification.

    Thanks again, Richard, for sending the recording to me. It was really fantastic content so thanks @chadstoltzfus and @sam_holland for the presentations. Anytime I can get a peek into other people's workflows I learn new stuff.
