THE FOLDER
C:\Users\<YOU>\AppData\LocalLow\ARCAT, Inc_\VRCAT
This folder is where you can have some fun.
The folders in this folder are where you can customize what it loaded when VRCAT starts.
 
IMPORT
custom_objects
Place any OBJ / MTL files exported from other 3D modelers here.
They will be loaded into your custom objects palette.
 
EXPORT
The save in VRCAT will export your project to the saves folder.
You can use these OBJ / MTL files in other applications like Revit, Sketchup or Maya.
 
CUSTOM BRUSHES
custom_brushes
Place any 2D meshes exported as OBJ files exported from other 3D modelers here.
They will be loaded into your brushes palette.
 
SCRIPTS
advanced
This is likely too much for most. These scripts instruct VRCAT to draw lines.
Currently, there is one command - DRAW LINE. This is an example:
DRAW LINE: rectangle straight COLOR:0,1,0.5,0.2 SCALE:0.02 POS:0,0.05,0 ROT:0,71,57 SCALE:0.5 SCALE:0.03 POS:0,0.06,0 ROT:0.05,0,51


command: DRAW LINE
rectangle: is the name of the custom brush OBJ file, in the custom_brushes folder, used for the extrusion
straight: line type (only line type at the moment)
COLOR: RGB floats
Start and end SCALEs: float
Start and end POSs and ROTs: XYZ

A simple javascript program can generate commands you can copy and paste to a script file that you can save in your scripts folder.

Try these out and have some fun.
