Different windows on corner (issue)
« on: August 11, 2020, 01:33:25 AM »
Hello guys,
this time i have another issue, it looks simple but I can not solve it. I want to make two different windows on a curtain wall (fixed and pivot/rotating window). When I make two separate Linear 1S generators with different ID limits, it works fine until I have a corner on spline. Then geometry doesn't get sliced on corner part. Then I tried using Selector (X Spline ID mode) , and it slices corners nicely but Start/End nodes are ignored in this case. I attached screenshots to make things clear (hopefuly).

Anyone got clue how to fix this ?

That does not look simple to me. Hard to understand the style just from Your description and screenshot.

1: That looks great! Can you show me how you did it ?
2: Also , what if i want to combine those two windows with only 45 degree slice between them (where corner column is now) ?

Thank you for reply. :)

1. File is attached.
2. That needs more work to put in. Currently we are a bit understaffed and we are a bit slow to respond.

2. I have premade few corner elements and swapping those based on spline ID and next ID.



Attached maxfile for Your reference. Hope this helps

This one is way more elegant solution. Unfortunately, I'll have to invest some time in understanding Expressions, since I have no clue how this one that you made works :)
Thank you very much Rokas!
