USAGE

  1. Place both .py files inside your actions folder (osx:/Applications/SilhouetteFX/Silhouette5.1.2/Silhouette.app/Contents/Resources/scripts/)
  2. This script should be used with keyboard shortcuts, create/add them in your Silhouette sfxuser.py:
import fx
def callMethod(func, *args, **kwargs):
    def _return_func():
        return func(*args, **kwargs)
    return _return_func

fx.bind('shift+F12', callMethod(fx.actions["bvfx_ShapeFuse"].execute,"build"))
fx.bind('F12', callMethod(fx.actions["bvfx_ShapeFuse"].execute,"collect"))
  1. Collect shape points one by one (F12 on the example above), when point collection is done, use the Build shortcut (shift+F12 on the example above).
