Hi there

http://redakce.digitalmedia.cz/upload/images_clanky/505/web.jpg

Idea:
I spoke about CINEMA 4D prmitives with one of our costumer and he is really very frustrated from them. He is not satisfed with "radius" primitive settings and he cry for "3ds primitive settings".
OK, but there is really very simple way how can we get the same result by XPresso, and this is very easy. Thus I prepare a few complex (but easy to settings) tools for everyone, who likes "diagonal" primitive editing. I named these tools A-tools (architectural tools, the user is an architect).

You can find these object in one file our download section on

http://www.3dsoftware.cz/download/DownDetail.aspx?ID=451

This file contains two files: a browser library file and pdf manual. This manual has international screens and it is in czech and english too!

library file contains 5 objects, three primitives A-Cube, A-pyramide, A-cylinder and two NURBS objects A-HN and A-LatheNURBS.

Advantages of A-primitives:
easer to set, better snapping etc. Cylinder sub. settings can be controled by camera distance, you can set Z independent on X size

Advantages of A-NURBS:
camera distance controls subdivisions...

A-Cube settings

A-pyramide settings

A-cylinder settings

A-HN

(it is upgrade of my older XPresso settings, there are few little improvments)

Hi pavel,

Great to see this Tools finished.

I don't know if you send me an E-mail today, I have problems with my computer.
After an update of windows my computer won't start anymore. grrrrrr blue-screen.
I hope to be back very soon. Glad we have more computers in this house.

Peace,
Rich_Art. :thumbsup:

PS: the credits for the English correction of the manual goes to my wife :applause: , not me. lol I'm not that good with English.

This looks great, but I have problems accessing it. First, for some reasons, parts of the library objects won't load in my R10, and your primitive objects don't. Also, can you make a version for R9 users, since I still use R9 because of some plug-ins that did not transition to R10.

Other than that, it looks like really great spins on primitives.

Eh, there is not problem on my side, I suppose, becouse tools have been wide tested and library works fine. But I had a very similar problem with other library file and I did ´t find why... If you want, I can send you simple scene with all objects and you can prepare your own library file.

R10 contra R9.6, we are a Maxon distributor for Czech and Slovak republics, thus I "push" to our clients :-).

But you´re right, conversion to older version is a bit frustrating...
