building-blocks edge ratio command


building-blocks edge ratio f <range>

Apply a sizing ratio to zones on edges. The ratio is applied to edges in the current <range>, if supplied, or on all edges if not. The ratio f must be between 0.1 and 10.0 (the default is 1.0).

When zones are generated from the blocks, the ratio (like a factor, see building-blocks edge factor) defines zones relatively along the edge of the block. The size of each zone will be f of the previous zone length. The default value is 1.0 (uniform zones — same length).

When the ratio for an edge is changed, the change is propagated to all face-connected opposite edges. If building-blocks edge ratio-isolate is set to true the changes will not propagate from the edge; the default setting of that flag is false.
