Default Authoring your own scripts

From within tcl, ac3d commands are generally called like this:

ac3d select_all
If a command returns a value:

set numselobs [ac3d selection_get_num_objects ]
For a list of available commands, send AC3D a 'list' comand e.g.

ac3d list
Some tips

Rather than using 'toplevel' to create a new window, we recommend you use 'new_toplevel <windowpath> <title>'. This is a multi-platform friendly function. Using this means that the script will run on any platform. If you do not use this, the new window can easily get lost behind others.

Under Windows, set File->Settings->Advanced->show-windows-console on. Any puts output will be shown in the console window that will stay visible after AC3D starts.
