Syntax

string assetApproxSize(searchQuery, axisSize, n)

Parameters

Returns

Asset with one of the best n size fits (according to axisSize).

Description

This function returns one of the n best size fitting assets, from the files specified by searchQuery, according to the specified axisSize string.

assetApproxSize(searchQuery, axisSize, 1) == assetBestSize(searchQuery, axisSize)

Examples

Inserting assets based on their (physical) size

The goal is to insert assets from a pool, depending on their (physical) size. The pool of assets is seen in the following image. Colors are (only) used to visually emphasize the size ratio.

Note the geometry variations in the next 3 images by using only the n parameter.

Note that small parts get blue assets while large parts get red assets.

n=1: "best fit"

Lot -->
    s('0.9,'0.9,'0.9)
    center(xz)
    RecursiveSplit

RecursiveSplit -->
    case scope.sx >= 1.5 && scope.sz >= 1.5:
        split(x) { ~scope.sx/3 : split(z) { ~scope.sz/3 : RecursiveSplit }* }*
    else: innerRectangle(scope) { shape : Insert }

Insert -->
    alignScopeToAxes(y)
    i(assetApproxSize("/myProject/assets/cube_*.obj", "xz", 1))

n=2: "choose randomly one of the best two fits"

Insert -->
    alignScopeToAxes(y)
    i(assetApproxSize("/myProject/assets/cube_*.obj", "xz", 2))

n=3: "choose randomly one of the best three fits"

Insert -->
    alignScopeToAxes(y)
    i(assetApproxSize("/myProject/assets/cube_*.obj", "xz", 3))
