Warning,

this is version 0.07 of the script, it is in an Unfinished, Beta State
some things just wont be functional
over the next days or weeks, i’ll replace it with new versions
when it’s complete it will be called version 1.0
even the manual will change sporadically


//==============================================================================
Version History
2012 Jun 25 06:48   v0.07 the DS3/DS4 script has d-Form handling functionality
2012 Jun 21 06:41   v0.06 lFor DS1 and 2 ( briefly tested on DS1.8) and important patch to the DS3/4 version
....
2012 Jun 9 23:58   v 0.00 initial release


//==============================================================================


for the impatients (which would include me ) , the unfinished/beta version of mcjSuperlathe
as you could see in the old forum’s teaser thread, it can already do a lot of neat tricks

here’s a few teaser pics
and a screenshot of the UI

the idea is: using your mouse, you draw a curve, this curve is then use to deform existing objects or figures
and it keeps the functionality offered by mcjLathe

you know the maids in anime look happy but it must be a very stressful job

yay 11:57 i made it before the midnight deadline !!!

~ SuperLathe ~ News ~ ~ SuperLathe ~ News ~ ~ SuperLathe ~ News ~ ~ SuperLathe ~ News ~

so far the scale / shear / twist / press deformers in mcjSuperLathe version 0.05
only work well when the object being deformed is not moved / rotated / scaled from its load-time state
The News is that, once that’s fixed, ve’re probably be at the Version 1.0, the real release.

the first image here ( is a bit of a monster ) shows how the gizmo ( the panel that acts a bit like a lathe tool ) only affects the area it is projected unto ( i’m so lucky i dont have an English teacher witness my sentences ).

lol @ english teacher bit.  Who knew you were a comedian?! LOL

I had a go at your Superlathe last night and I must be using it wrong because I find the regular mclathe version so much easier to understand.  I know Superlathe is supposed to be the all-in-one.  I didn’t see the drawing board that mclathe has for me to create curves, so I just messed around with twist, bend, shear, etc.  Maybe I’m just technically challenged rolleyes  I’ll have another go at it tonite and see if my understanding improves any.

oops no drawing board, that’s a serioud problem, i’ll try to understand why and fix it, it’s supposed to look as shown below.

mcjLathe could create props, mcjSoperLathe can deform existing props/figures. i’m thinking i may add the ability to create extrusions, like for example ribbed columns and gears etc etc

Sorry it seems I was confused when I said the superlathe did not have a drawing board for me.  It is there.  It just did not have the blue dots and red dot initially unless I load a previously created curve from mcjlathe.

oh then you possibly have one of the first versions
the recent versions contain a folder with 10 curves,
when the program starts, it tries to load one of those curves,
so if you use an old version folder and the curves are not there ... my fault sorry smile

for your trouble you win a pic of a rich maid

i’ll test it right now in daz studio 4 pro
( i build it using studio 3 )
it takes so long to start ! studio 4 i mean, we’re taking minutes


yes it works

built in DS4
this was a straight primitives-cylinder
rendered in Blender/cycles

oh and you’ll probably get an error message the first time you run it, just run in again
