FLATTEN, FRAGMENT and WOBBLE selected lines. K4DEMO, an evaluation version of K4-TOOLKIT-01, provides commands to manipulate selected lines. For demonstration purposes, one or two 3D houses are drawn parametrically, which can then be further processed via:
Selected 3D lines can be flattened from any view point and placed as a 2D image on the XY plane, leaving the original 3D lines intact. Creates multiple 3D views from a simple wire-frame drawing.
Selected lines (2D/3D) are broken wherever they intersect each other. The resulting fragments can then be further manipulated as required. Used in conjunction with Flatten (on a 3D wire-frame model), solid looking drawings and cutaway models can be created quickly (no Trimming) by erasing selected fragments.
Selected lines are randomly wobbled to user-defined parameters to create effects ranging from fine hand-drawn lines to squiggly organic-looking lines. Wobble lines more than once to create a sketched effect. Useful for adding emphasis to presentation drawings by squiggling background material.
