Hello again. I previously posted a question about bridge support placement here http://forum.itoosoft.com/index.php?topic=2922.0
and now, I'm trying to achieve a certain level of control over the overpass bridge that runs above the support. In the image above, i have a section of the curb used on the bridge. The 'normal' road sections are in blue and the 'bridge' road section is red. Using one railclone object (and any number of generators within), i'd like to have two numeric parameters control the start and end points of all bridge elements between road sections.
When a red bridge section starts, this would mean a blue road section ends. and when a red bridge section ends, a blue section starts again.
I created the image above with three generators, so the final result might call for something similar. I'm just not completely certain how to feed the numeric parameters into the generators. perhaps they would connect to the padding of the generators somehow? I thought maybe a numeric parameter could connect to the padding of one generator and then connect to an arithmetic operator (which somehow would minus the numeric parameter input from the total spline length) that then feeds into another generator's padding? i know it's possible to just use spline mat id's but i'd prefer to put the control in the railclone object itself for flexibility. any help would be appreciated or approaches that are different from what I suggested.
Again, my only concern is having two numeric parameters that control the start and end points of the bridge section within the road. Thank you
