comp

Syntax

  • string comp.sel
  • float comp.index
  • float comp.total

Description

The comp attributes give information about the last component split in the chain of the shape’s predecessors.

comp.sel is a string describing the component split selector which selected the current shape (or it’s predecessor, respectively) in the last component split.

comp.index is the zero-based index for the group of shapes generated by the selector.

comp.total is the total number of shapes generated by the selector.

Example

Index and total are per selector; for instance

...
primitiveCube()
comp(f) { front : Front | side : Side }

creates one Front shape with

  • comp.sel: front
  • comp.index: 0
  • comp.total: 1

and 3 Side shapes with

  • comp.sel: side
  • comp.index: 0,1,2
  • comp.total: 3
