Split in Chunks - Copy Model
« on: August 26, 2017, 03:46:49 PM »
Scripting newbie question:

I use the split_in_chunks script quite a lot (thank you to whoever authored it!) and its very useful.

I now have a situation where I want to split a chunk into separate chunks, duplicating not only the dense cloud/cameras but the 3D model as well.

I *think* I have found the section in the script:
 new_chunk = chunk.copy()
      new_chunk.label = "Chunk "+ str(i)+ "\\" + str(j) + "\\" + str(k)
      new_chunk.model = None
      doc.addChunk(new_chunk)

With the command that deals with the model in bold. I have checked the reference manual, but cannot find an example? I am guessing the None needs to be something else, and have tried a few guesses but no luck.

Can anyone help?

Hello SimonBrown,

chunk.copy() function accepts the parameters to be copied (by default the chunk is fully duplicated). The line that you have highlighted means that the model for the new_chunk is discarded after duplicating.
