border flagging/Pavement Corner Problem
« on: January 18, 2017, 11:34:49 AM »
Hi,

I really tried to find a way for my own pavement, but after 5 hours of trying I gave up.

Is there an easy way in Railclone for this kind of pavement? (RC_Picture_01.jpg)
From far away it looks okay, but if you see the closeup, you can see the problem in the corners. (RC_Picture_comp.jpg / upper part)

In the Picture (RC_Picture_comp.jpg / second part) you can see that if I break the spline and move it by hand, I nearly get the result I want. It would be perfect if I do not need to break the spline, because there are many more areas where i need welded splines.

My first approach was to find a similar preset from the Library Browser but I couldn't find something that I can use for my Pavement.

I attached the Max2017 file. Perhaps this help a little bit.

It would be very great if somebody can help me or give me some hint.

Hi,

Disabling bevelling under Rules - Corner - Bevel Mode > None would be recommendable in this case. Instead of Transform - Translation on Y axis for these Segments, using the General - Geometry - Y Offset should give better results. To better solve Corners, adding an empty Segment should help. Attaching modified scene. Hope you'll find it useful.

Best regadrs,

Hi,

I'm afraid not, I've superposed "source two images" in the graphic editor.

Wow.

Thank you so much. This looks way better. I really don't understand why an empty segment in the corner slot works in this case, but its working... :-).

Thanks for this great support
