VEX cabinet generator

Recommended Posts

hi, have you tips for a vex beginner?

This is a node configuration of a cabinet generator. it has a fixed number of drawers. I could not find a solution for any number of drawers with the nodes. I also find my configuration cumbersome.

That's why I want to do it with vex. But unfortunately I failed with my first attempts. Important is to use different modelled detailed meshes as drawers for this generator.

Maybe you have an idea.

thanks.

Are you wanting the cabinet to be always filled but the height variable? Do you need to be able to set the width of every drawer? Do you need to account for empty space as well or are all of these things just a way to fix the model?

Also do you have any experience with vex (or coding) at all?

Width, height and depth should be variable. The cabinet must not always be filled. The drawer width only has to scale with the cabinet. Hiding the drawers individually is generally interesting.

Vex is my first language. I have already looked at some basic things, but I still need many examples, inspirations and techniques. But I also have a look at some things on cgwiki.

Alright sorry for the wait I ran into a little problem that I had to fix. This file has a bunch of notes and if you have more questions (or anyone has any constructive criticism on it) I’ll be checking in on the thread.

Thank you again for taking the time for the construction and the detailed documentation.
The construction is really nice.

I will buy the procedural tutorial series from anastasia opara.

No need to buy her lake house videos just yet! Just watch the free talk she does on vimeo, it is a good way to understand how you should approach most problems in houdini.
