Hello, I’m a bit new to Dynamo and I’m experimenting with divided surfaces. I’m attempting to achieve the correct dimensions with U = 8 and V = 4. I want a panel with a height of 8’ and a width of 4’. However, I must be making a mistake in Dynamo because I’m not getting the desired sizes. Can anyone help me?
Typically U and V are actually the number of panels to place across a face, not the dimensions. You will need to assess the length of the surface edges (using the Isocurves node) and then determine how many U/V divisions they require to get to those dimensions by dividing/rounding.
thank you for replying to my forum GavinCrump But, how can I determine the number of panels to place across a face, considering that U and V typically represent the divisions and not the dimensions? Additionally, what is the process for assessing the length of surface edges using the Isocurves node and determining the U/V divisions needed to achieve specific dimensions through division and rounding?
Thank you immensely for your assistance. I’ve only just realized that you are one of my favorite YouTubers - your videos have been extraordinarily helpful. Additionally, I have an inquiry: I am in search of a Dynamo package that features a red or green light on nodes to signify whether they are operating correctly or obtaining accurate information. Would you know of the specific package I am referencing? also thank you again, its pretty cool that your helping me.
Glad to help!
Not familiar with that specific package, although the Tuneup extension should generally be helpful for tracking script performance.
