I want to create a tool that can draw a simple construction with columns and beams. This have to be components. I want an option that you can give in height, width, length and how many fields. So you have an automatic proces. I can do some simple ruby things but I don’t know if my idea is possible? Or can this better been done with dynamic components?

and assuming it’s a column… let’s scale its height etc [remember it’s 1" in all axes at the moment], leaving its insertion-point where we just specified it…

The sizes should be in inches as it starts off as 1x1x1", so it it is to be 12" x 6" x 96" use: inst.transform!( Geom::Transformation.scaling( inst.transformation.origin, 12.0, 6.0, 96.0) )
