Reset Scale

Hello
I created a new function for dynamic components, according to the TIG method by integrating
if not DCFunctionsV1.method_defined? (: parametres3dtext)
defparametres3dtext (a)
I was largely inspired by TIG’s TextTag plugin
Thank you TIG
The parameter3dtext function works well! It creates the attributes (font, text, alignment, bold …), It erases all the entities of the component, it adds a group to it and in this last it models the 3d text with add3dtext () on the entities of the group.

The downside is that the text is distorted by the old component scale. The only manual remedy is the right click reset the scale.
How to do this scale reset but in ruby.

I read several related posts but without understanding the steps and the result of each. I do not know where to look, thank you for agreeing to explain me step by step.

Thank you

Do you realize that changing the DCFunctionsV1 class makes it no longer version 1 ?

This means it can only work with your own components and cannot be released as an extension on the EW, and should not be released as an extension anywhere at all.

Good evening Dan,
I do not modify the DCFunctionsV1 in any way, I ask it blindly if the function named “xx” exists and I implement my function in a very separate file. So no I am not modifying the Trimble proprietary file. I do this for myself and share it with anyone who finds it useful. If Trimble feels offended and does not want to open their platform to me to share this code, well too bad for them! After this clarification are you willing to continue to help me.
Thank you

I remembered that old link
http://www.martinrinehart.com/models/tutorial/tutorial_t.html

So I would think like this… using Transformation .scaling method

def reset_scale_a(obj)
  tr_matrix = obj.transformation.to_a
  xscale = tr_matrix[0]
  yscale = tr_matrix[5]
  zscale = tr_matrix[10]
  tr_reset_scale = Geom::Transformation.scaling(1.0/xscale, 1.0/yscale, 1.0/zscale)
  obj.transform!(tr_reset_scale)
end

or:

def reset_scale_b(obj)
  tr_matrix = obj.transformation.to_a
  xscale = tr_matrix[0]
  yscale = tr_matrix[5]
  zscale = tr_matrix[10]
  cp = obj.bounds.center
  tr_reset_scale= Geom::Transformation.scaling(cp, 1.0/xscale, 1.0/yscale, 1.0/zscale)
  obj.transform!(tr_reset_scale)
end

So you can call these methods by put your desired group to argument, like:

reset_scale_a(group_text_new)

or

reset_scale_b(group_text_new)

Thanks a lot Dezmo
I go to test and I come back

Incorrect. You are modifying the DCFunctionsV1 class.

NO
