wrinkleContext( string , [branchCount=uint], [branchDepth=uint], [exists=boolean], [history=boolean], [image1=string], [image2=string], [image3=string], [name=string], [randomness=linear], [style=string], [thickness=linear], [wrinkleCount=uint], [wrinkleIntensity=linear])

Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.

wrinkleContext is undoable, queryable, and editable.

This command creates a context that creates wrinkles.

Return value

stringThe name of the context created

In query mode, return type is based on queried flag.


branchCount, branchDepth, exists, history, image1, image2, image3, name, randomness, style, thickness, wrinkleCount, wrinkleIntensity
Long name (short name) Argument types Properties
exists(ex) boolean create
Returns true or false depending upon whether the specified object exists. Other flags are ignored.
image1(i1) string createqueryedit
image2(i2) string createqueryedit
image3(i3) string createqueryedit
Contexts support up to three icons that represent the tool associated with the context.
history(ch) boolean create
If this is a tool command, turn the construction history on for the tool in question.
name(n) string create
If this is a tool command, name the tool appropriately.
style(st) string createqueryedit
Set the wrinkle characteristic shape."lines"|"radial"|"custom. Default is "radial".
wrinkleCount(wc) uint createqueryedit
Set the number of wrinkle creases. Default is 3.
branchCount(brc) uint createqueryedit
Set the number of branches spawned from a crease for radial wrinkles. Default is 2.
branchDepth(bd) uint createqueryedit
Set the depth of branching for radial wrinkles. Defaults to 0.
wrinkleIntensity(wi) linear createqueryedit
Set the depth intensity of the wrinkle furrows. Defaults to 0.5.
randomness(rnd) linear createqueryedit
Set the deviation of the wirnkle creases from straight lines and other elements of the wrinkle structure. Defaults to 0.2.
thickness(th) linear createqueryedit
Set the thickness of wirnkle creases by setting the dropoff distance on the underlying wires.
