Im writing a script that creates prefabbed Wheels. What I want to do with it now is to have a spinner that creates the number of spokes.

How would I go about selecting only every other side of a editable mesh cylinder that has say 20 sides. I want to do this without selecting either the top or bottom.

So with this I can then somehow link it to the spinner. I do this because selecting everyother side, I can extrude them to create the spokes. Using the spinner I want to change the number of spokes in real time.

Any help on the subject for a nooby would be greatly appreciated!

Heres the script so far:

rollout rim "Rim-Maker"

(

button c "Create"

spinner spokes "#Spokes" range:[2,20,5] type:#integer

on c pressed do

(

Cyl = cylinder height:13 sides:12

Tub = tube radius1:90 radius2:88 height:70 sides:30

Tub.pos = [0,0,-20]

Tub1 = tube radius1:97 radius2:89 height:4 sides:30

Tub1.pos = [0,0,48]

Tub2 = tube radius1:97 radius2:89 height:4 sides:30

Tub2.pos = [0,0,-20]

Tub3 = tube radius1:89 radius2:82 height:30 sides:30

Tub3.pos = [0,0,0]

)

)-- end rollout

Newfloater = newrolloutfloater "Rims" 300 300

addrollout rim Newfloater
