HSigning – Horizontal Lines Signing Object Plugin

HSigning is a tool to automate create horizontal signing (dashed and continuous lines) geometry objects. In few and easy steps, the creation process for each kind of dashed line: it can be used to simulate the traffic signs standards.

You can create HSigning by picking any shape in the scene.

  • – All distance values are in system units.
  • – Distance values along spline (Stroke, Gap, Seg. Length…) are measured along the spline (not straigth distance)
  • – When creating a new signing_line, pick over an existing line. If not, nothing is created.
  •           * First mouse drag: segments length
  •           * Second mouse drag: segments gap
  • – To keep line alignement, create the new signing_lines in Top or Perspective views.
  • – This prototype version works with any type of shape but ONLY with one spline at a time.
  •           CAUTION: if shape baseObject is a LINE it will be converted to SplineShape, with no possible UNDO.
  •           ONLY baseObject is changed. All modifiers remain as they were before.
  •           In this case, the HSigning will be created but the creation will be interrumpted and no mouse dragging is
  •           possible.
  • – For software creation, you can define position on creation or create the object and then assign the spline.

There are two commercial versions (maxscript and C#) with all missing features:

  • – Work with multispline shapes.
  • – Mapping coordinates.
  • – Gluing to surface.
