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
