Cabling, do we really need another featurescript?
link to the more details
I had to cable up a rack of equipment at work and wasn't looking forward to defining the curves & sweeps.
This is a great application for featurescript and after reviewing several existing apps I decided to extend these concepts. I wanted it to be extremely easy & fast because personally I don't like doing cables & cable management. I'm not trying to accomplish a fully defined cable with pinouts & netlist; I'll leave that for someone else. I just want to declare what needs hooking up and show a basic path.
This rack of equipment is Cory Henderson's and I grabbed it from the public domain, thank you Cory. I cabled it up in about 30 minutes.
I have no idea what this thing does but it looks awesome and I just wanted to throw some cables down.
How many cables can you pass through a slot? All cables have a start, end and intermediate points. Below are 6 cables all starting/ending from a block.
Of course, we need to make changes without blowing up the model. Below we change the position of the slot and all the cables update:
This featurescript isn't ready for public consumption yet, but if your working on cabling and would to try this feature, I'd be happy to share it with you. Just private message me your account email and I'll share this document with you.
