Clipping area bugging my default segment. What to do ?
« on: January 21, 2014, 12:18:21 PM »
Hi, new to this railclone version. Trying to simply array a segment and clip it with a spline.

Borders are all strange look at the image.

What should i try ?

For the moment i tried to change spline interpolation, tried to change projection, tried to subdivide base segment, tried to rebuild the clipping curve, tried to change x-bevel options(none, extend, vertex type). This has not worked.



Thanks

This problem seems caused by the Max boolean function, that we use internally to clip the segments. Unfortunately it doesn't always work as intended.

Please, send a test scene to support@itoosoft.com. We'll check it.

Carlos,

What's the function in the SDK that you're using? I've been playing around with the SDK recently, and I want to see if I can smack it around a bit and get it to work properly.

Currently we use MNMesh::MakeBoolean with Intersection operation, which is equivalent to Boolean->Intersection.
Anyway, in our internal build we have replaced it by Boolean->Cut which works much better, and seems to solve all clipping issues. This modification will be included in the next RC beta.

Sounds good. The main issue I ran into was that I was getting different (more accurate) results when my system units were in cm rather than m.
