Hi,

I'm using script to parameterize my geometry. But when I use the script to record the curve creation. The curves are randomly named as crv..... or GEOM...., like crv.38 or GEOM3. That makes the script hard to be checked. May I ask how to make my curve names only as crv.1, crv.2,crv.3........?

Best regards and many thanks,
lnk

You can control naming of the geomtry elements by, for example for a Curve:
Right click on the Rename Curve under Curves.

then you can set how numbering comes after a text. for example: mycurve-01 mycurve-02

If you are importing Formatted Data Points, you can also do the same in its setting!

Hi, Khayyamian

Thanks for your answer. I generate all my geometry by script. The problem is I never named any points to GEOM... (like GEOM 5). But after I run the script, I click 'show the points name'. Some points named GEOM... come out. ( don't know why) And they totally overlap with some of my points that their name block my sight to the name of the points I defined. How to fix this problem?

Best regards,

Hi,
regarding overlapping points, I also have this problem. for example when I create some planes, it creates some excessive curves (which overlap my existing curves). Actually I dont know how to avoid automatically your excessive points.

If I were you, I will do following:

you can delete those points and let the script replay record your actions.
I have done this before. it worked!

Also if you can post your work, it might be helpful!

Thanks for your answer. But I really want to avoid the showing of these points from the beginning. For my geometry, there are several thousands of them. It's large work to delete. And these points named Geom... always bring bug to my script.

Best regards and many thanks,

Hi, Khayyamian

Here I upload a simple case for that point naming GEOM problem.

Could you tell to how avoid the creation of the points named GEOM....?


Best regards and many thanks,
lnk
