Creating a Sliding Door
« on: May 07, 2015, 03:20:07 AM »

First to explain what I am trying to do with RCP. I'm trying to make a sliding door model that allows me to pull open the sliding door frame along the x axis, the height of the frame in the Y axis, and automatically populate sliding doors inside the frame, but I want them to be in the open position. I also have a Boolean parameter to control if model has 2 or 3 doors, then a parameter controlling the percentage of the door width would be 50% for 2 doors, 33% for 3 doors, etc.

I have tried using an expression that divides the length of the X spline and multiplies it by 30 percent to achieve this but it seems that the value leaving the expression block is not valid for a value entering the  segments parameters.

I have attached some screenshots of the model i'm trying to achieve and the expression i'm having issues with.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, i've moved your post from the Tutorials board to here. That board should now allow new posts, just replies to the existing tutorials. Sorry by that.

Please, would you post your question in the RailClone Pro board ?. You can write there using the login credentials included with your license.
