First time teaching Knowledge Patterns

Last night was the first time to roll out knowledge patterns in the seminar.  In the three hour format it was a bit rushed but we have two weeks to work on this assignment so I am optimistic that people wil be able to work through the flow of the various steps and operations.

I am curious to see if the power of the scripting out weights the perceived difficulty of the scripting and the process.  I hope that after the two previous weeks everyone is tired of manually instantiating their parts.  I am also curious to see what new types of projects will emerge from this type of tool.

Document Template Tutorial with Rules

This tutorial starts with an existing framework (download here).  I also included two rules to control the circles to always sit inside of the control points.

The document template allows you to deal with advanced replication of solids.  It also allows you to create separate files for each part, so that each instance can be modified independently.

If you want to jump ahead to the actual making of the document template you can download the geometry for the part (here).
