I want to add a mesh circle to my blender scene using script.
I can add lamps, cameras and a mesh( which comes out as a single dot or vertices) but what is the syntax to make it a circle or any standard shape from the mesh menu.
and can anyone give me a good source to finding syntax for blender scripits?
circles shouldn't be too difficult to create in a script.
One of the things in Blender.NMesh will return an empty mesh if none is specified. Why cannot a circle be created with trig, NMVert s and two edged NMFace s?
I don't have code right now, but I see no reason for blender to expose (most of) the primitives in the add menu. They can be created quite easily (if you are conscious, which I am not currently) using python.
syntax for blender scripts?
you mean example code?
or what can be done with avaliable modules?
I hope that in the future the documentation project can cover both, but for the moment look for the docstrings for 2.25. I think I have the ones for 2.23 at http://www.geocities.com/z3r0_d/blenderDoc.html
Blender will not let you specify where and what size of circle you want. I know you can position your insertion point on screen but then you have go edit the circle again maybe the location and size. I am working on a script to insert a circle to a specified XY position and give it a radius . I will have to brush up on my trig i guess sense blender may not let you use all it's tools.
