ok...i will do what i can to update icons and filenames to match the currently functioning macros by Friday.

I just had a quick look around and realized that i let the repo organization drift to the point where i even i have a hard time finding thing :?

It's definitely more fun to write new stuff than to maintain existing stuff :D

Yes having proper icons would be cool. ;)

If you will provide that first thing i will do is create a set of macro commands on the toolbar. And after test them.

i started a tutorial. It is useful to get through setup at least. This is only for 2 of the macros, so you can get a feel for the tools without spending an hour making toolbars.

https://github.com/edwardvmills/NURBSlib_EVM/blob/gh-pages/Tutorial%200.01%20ControlPoly4%20and%20CubicCurve4.md

i only need an hour or two more of work on it, so it should be done this friday.

if you want to get ahead of that...i did make a few new icons, so here is the recommended setup. Highlighted are the 2 macros used in the tutorial above:
Tutorial 0.01 setup - ControlPoly4 and CubicCurve4.PNG
Tutorial 0.01 setup - ControlPoly4 and CubicCurve4.PNG (84.95 KiB) Viewed 537 times

still missing 4 icons, but i think it should be bearable.

If you want to look at existing models, look in https://github.com/edwardvmills/NURBSlib_EVM/tree/master/development_FC_models/parametric/begin%20transition%20to%200.17

Since i had to make some drastic changes going from 0.16 to 0.17, i have no idea which ones of the older models still work.

tutorial more or less complete.

edit:fixed url
https://github.com/edwardvmills/NURBSlib_EVM/blob/gh-pages/Tutorial%200.01%20ControlPoly4%20and%20CubicCurve4.md

I think it is ready aside from typos. It gives good coverage of just two macros, so you get a lot of mileage for very little setup time.

I hope you like it. If Someone posts screenshots of actual curve models made with it, i'll write the next tutorial: ControlGrid44 and CubicSurface44!

Thanks will go over everything at weekend.

P.S. Likely we should open new thread to discuss this further.

A user! Most excellent.
Tutorial 0.02 on the way.

I will post the link in the macro forum tho, this conversation doesn't belong here.
