boolean problems

This message was originally posted by steeve on 04/03/2009 13:41:16
Hi
First of all I’d like to say that I am really enjoying getting familiar with K-3d. I have used and do use many 3d and cad apps professionally, and I haven’t yet come across anything with an approach anything like k-3d...very exciting.
Of course at first it is pretty strange, but I think I’m beginning to get it and I like it. The flexibilty, the interface, the concepts...nice. Thanks and kudos to all.
But not luck with boolean ops so far, either with 0.6 on ubuntu or with 0.7 on xp. Is this to be expected or am I doing something wrong? Any attempt causes k-3d to close. Even when running the boolean tutorial packed with v0.6 the program closes as soon as the boolean function is called.

Hi Steve:
Boolean are not finished yet as far as i know. Although latest version of K-3D (0.7.11) should be more or less usable.
Bart will answer this more correctly.
Cheers!

Hi Steve,
Up-to-date instructions on how to use the boolean operations can be found on http://www.k-3d.org/wiki/CGAL_Boolean_Operations
The 0.7.11 installer contains significant changes in the boolean operations, is that the one you tried?
Cheers,
Bart

yes, i tried the 0.7.11 windows binary
thanks for the CGAL instructions, Bart. my compiling skills are almost zero, but i guess in time all the necessary libraries will be bundled with the k-3d package.
thanks,
steve

Ah, so the 0.7.11 binary crashes? Do you get any error message? And on what processor are you running?
Cheers,
Bart

There is no error msg from k3d, but on the MS error report:
Error signature
ModName libk 3dsdk.dll
Offset: 001f0e0a
I could send the error file if you want.
my processor is an amd sempron 3000+

K-3d is a great program. I would have a use for it if there were export plugins for .X, .ACT and other popular formats. the fact that it only exports in its own format and can only open its own format makes it fun to play with but not very practical. Nice piece of work though.

I would even say better than Blender, easier to learn and use to.

Hi,
Writing export plugins is quite straightforward, both in Python and in C++. For C++, there are examples in the modules/*_io (i.e. obj_io) directories. In Python, an example is in share/scripts/scripted_plugins/ac3d_exporter.py.
For usage in K-3D, the C++ writers appear in the Create->MeshWriter menu, the Python ones appear in Create->Scripts.
Also, if you provide us some more details on the fileformats you require, we’d be happy to help you out writing the exporter(s).
The recommended version at this point is K-3D 0.7.11.0, since the current SVN code is in the middle of a transition to a new mesh format.
Cheers,
Bart
