ASL Scripts / Re: Script Request: Chain Link Maker

Attached is yet another version of chain_maker.  This one fixes the flipped normals problem of version 4 posted earlier today.

Attached is the latest version of chain_maker.  It now has functionality for elongated chains in the $stretch parameter.  If the $stretch parameter is set to zero, you will get the round links.

Please post questions and comments.

Tanzim (and everyone),

The script will only work in the latest version: 0.97b.  Steve added that functionality to that version.  It will not work in any earlier version.

I have fixed the link spacing error.  Read the comments in the script for hints on proper relationships between link thickness and link diameter.

I am still working on how to make an oblong link.

Good catch on the flipped normals, Hihosilver.  The fixed script is attached.  Oblong links will take a little longer since that shape cannot be explicitly described by a parametric equation like a torus.  I'll see what I can do.

Attached below is a script to create chains that follow splines. [Thank you Steve for spline-following ASL ability!].

The script basically creates torii alternating at right angles along the spline.  The parameters of the torii can be changed: the size, width, number of sides, number of segments per torii.  The script currently makes each link a separate mesh to allow easier edits (easily changed if desired).  This editing ability comes in handy if the spline turns more rapidly than the diameter of the link.

Try it out.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hey!  My slightly inebriated wife and I think that was awesome!  Can't wait to see more!
