Concluding remarks for this chapter and further ideas.

Command scripting gives you a great amount of control at creating and managing large files. It helps you create any variety of landscaping files easily. You have indulged and created what if scenarios and easily referenced less or more detailed models. Lighting, rendering and texturing are easier, more productive and synergistic with other files now. File management of all related files is easy the folder locations are explicitly shown in the script and are all at one location in a small compact text file. Other information like sizes and properties of objects are more easily established and managed.

Even if you don't have detailed models/parts you can create them in the proper proportions in block or lesser form first than using commandscripting reference more detailed models/parts latter.

These tutorials are a good start from here you could take it a step further by using a spreadsheet program.If you are savvy with Excel or other spreadsheet programs there are a wealth of ways to use the power of spreadsheets and commdscripting. If you are a programmer you can build a custom interface to create commandscripts that could export the text right to the Rhinoceros command prompt. To learn more about using Excel with Rhinoceros visit my website at www.3dEdge or email me at the address below.

Commandscripting is unexplored territory and there is little or no documentation on it at the present moment. I think this reference is the first attempt to codify a syntax. Because of this there really is not a right or wrong way to script because users and Rhinoceros programmers are still developing the language.
