    Post Grid ZScript

    Hello everybody,

    i want to share my first try to make a "usefull" ZScript... it is a script, which will draw a grid on your zbrush canvas with diffrent settings... and you can align your tool an this grid...

    maybe someone can use it.. i dont now if there is a script like this somewhere on the net.. if yes, it was a cool learning script...



    grid_rev_a_eng.zip

    i hope i found every error...

    Hi BigMike
    Your script works fine !
    I think that you must indicate that We must clic many time on the "?" for have the complete manual
    I have found just a little thing (for the moment)
    The translate of the item "Put on own layer" is german language when the the mouse is above
    The align tool for me was just align on the intersection : is that normal ? (you said along)
    In normal use how many layers is used ?
    Just a sugestion : can you draw the Midle lines at the end ,
    because the normal line hide the axes when intersect
    Great first script !
    Have you fell some difficulties for realise that or it was easy ?
    Pilou
    Ps more suggestion : Circular grid, concentric grid, scale differential...
    More colors for making gradient.
    Can you give an exemple(image) with two different Z paramaters ?
    I don't very understand this option
    Is beautiful that please without concept! ( Me and maybe also E Kant)

    thanks a lot!
    sorry for the missing translation.. i write it first in german and then translated it...
    the align tool works on the intersection formed by the gridlines... i changed it in the text...

    grid_rev_a_eng.zip

    here is a simple example with two diffrent z-depth settings:




    if you enabled the option "Put on own layer" the grid is drawn on the actual layer and a new one will be created...

    it is a good idea to draw the middle lines at the end.. i will make this and i think about your great suggestions...
    i will upload the new version in the next days here...

    it was a big fun to write this script... you can learn a lot more about zbrush if you write such a script...

    Hi Big Mike
    The quality of your realisation is inciting to make a script ! Maybe a day I shall finally cracked
    For the layers I have not very well reading that a new layer is created when own is enable !
    Ok I understand the Z
    Can I snap a brush stroke line to the Intersections ?
    Last suggestion for today
    You put the minimum to 10 Pixols but if some one (me for example see at the bottom
    want to use your script for make patchwork or colored papers the minimum 1 for H&W will be wished

    Made with your script
