Hi all ,
I am new to python scripting with dynamo , the problem in a brief is that am trying to make a function that takes a point as a parameter , in the function am defining a point variable to use as a center like the following ::
def MyFunction(center , etc…):
centerpoint = Point.ByCoordinates(center)
now when i recall the function like
MyFunction((0,0,0) , etc…)
I got an error saying (expected point got tuple)!! why is it expecting point inside a point ?? shouldn’t it be expecting tuple !?
Hi all ,
Can you show your full script?
The Point.ByCoordinates doesn’t accept a list of numbers, it expects 3 explicit numbers. You can’t just use a list/tuple variable inside, but would need Point.ByCoordinates(centerX, centerY, centerZ)
If you have it set up like a list, you could do Point.ByCoordinates(center,center,center)
# Enable Python support and load DesignScript library import clr clr.AddReference('ProtoGeometry') from Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry import * # The inputs to this node will be stored as a list in the IN variables. def makeCenter(center): return Point.ByCoordinates(center,center,center) centerPoint = makeCenter((0,0,0)) # Assign your output to the OUT variable. OUT = centerPoint
As @kennyb6 said, the inputs for your function aren’t of the correct type. If you are using a Dynamo OotB node inside a Python script, you can right click on the node in the graph and hit “help” to check which inputs are expected. If you are using a Python function, you can check online (say Google) to know exactly which inputs are expected.
Hope it helps
Thank you very much for your help, it was useful, it’s just that am Familiar with python coding within rhino, and the way I uses works there perfectly, anyways thanks
