nz_SmartArray

Populate a curve by defining a component and/or a set spacing gap

 

Ideal for creating a paving border, accordion doors, array of windows, a series of glas balustrades etc.

 

You need only focus on what matters to you....

 

a start and end point for the curve

the dimensions of the component itself (say a paver, balustrade, door)

the ideal spacing between components

 

nz_SmartArray will allow you to populate of a curve by

 

ByComponent

Components are centred about the midpoints of the curve segments

 

ByGap

Each curve segment is deducted a gap-dimension with the remainder forming the component length

 

ByAnalysis

nz_SmartArray preserves the component length and respects the SetGap to achieve the ideal spacing of the component for the length of the selected curve.

 

 

Enjoy!

 

 

 

NB: Known Issue

On the occsaion that there may be a misalignment across a curve, then redrawing the curve with the curve start and end points reversed can fix this issue....

We are driven by our passion for the interpretive potential of architecture, and all that which can be designed. The relationship between people and their environment is fundamental to "Demonstrative Architecture" because architecture can be inscribed with meaning through the experience of form and function, and in this manner architecture/design can be an authentic manifestation of all that which we value and wish to be... When we are not designing buildings we are enabling creativity... I'm pleased to share some of our Sketchup Extensions. Design something worthwhile.....
