Hi Thomas,

I'm not prood of this part, but I'm open to suggestion

I never experienced that, can you pack the DOM files in a Zip and I'll have a
look;

You can use any name, the material is not generated, just used, so you must
define the material used before the include

I noticed no problem, but I will create a "complete" sample

Hi Thomas,

Here is an image where I used all the 11 possible material and it seems to work

Best regards

Thanks! And also for the .dll's. :-) I may give this a try and see what happens.
I have no idea yet if my Win 10 system has any of those dll's already installed
in other places (in which case, one version might be used rather than another?)
But such Windows voodoo is beyond my knowledge.

I hope it'll work and you'll enjoy it, if it is the case, feel free to report

I have (I noticed) different versions of the same dll's in different 
directories, the flotsam of several years of playing around :-) I never 
experienced any trouble (which doesn't mean anything of course, given my 
illiteracy into the arcane knowledge about our electronic little 
helpers' hard/software).

I'll be back a bit later about all this, as I first want to finalise the 
granites macro this week.

Just a question at this stage: Am I right that the obj version only 
reproduces the dome's "shell" and not the ribs or struts and such? That 
is also what I think I remember from the past. I got a saved dom file to 
reload correctly and I got again the knowledge about the inc file's 
structure. I need to get familiarised again with the different scales of 
the dome elements, compared with each other.

Hi Thomas

You are right the OBJ and STL files reproduce only the "face" structure, not the
struts


I'm very happy to see to see you got it to work

Best regards

Philippe

Hi

Here is the latest version:

1) Correction of a few little bugs
2) New features (sharpening, which is roughly the opposite of smoothing)

Enjoy

Philippe

Hi

Thomas asked me :
>>Am I right that the obj version only reproduces the dome's "shell"
>>and not the ribs or struts and such?

He was right, but now it is possible : the image beyond is a captue of a 3d
viewer showing a generated OBJ files with the struts, the spheres and the
colors. Of course, with the 3d viewer you can rotate, translate and zoom in/out
the object.
