jit.gl.path pathstyle tube "dimensions"
Feb 08 2019 | 5:35 pm
Hi there! Dear Jitters,
Sometimes we take so many turns to the same problem that we end up confused. A gridshape has the input of dim to control its two dimensions ("resolution"). In the specific case of the tube applied in jit.gl.path (jit.gl.path @pathstyle tube) we have the segments to control one of the dimensions (say "longitudinal resolution"). But how do we control the "section" resolution? I saw that it has 20 divisions by default.
Please note that I am aware that a gridshape and a tube style applied to gl.path are not the same thing. As far as I see the tube is a mesh (a gridshape can be used "natively" or to "control" a mesh by its matrix output). Sorry for the question... maybe the answer is obvious, but, I confess, I'm not seeing clearly how to define this.
Thanks for your attention. Kind regards, Horácio
