How to create these columns
« on: November 20, 2019, 10:41:05 AM »
Hey all,

I'm trying to create some parametric columns that replicate the one's I've made in sketchup. Basically the middle timber section will be to scale/tile depending on the length of the column, and then capped off at either end with the metal pieces; I think this is something I could achieve myself fairly easily... But how do I get the bases that the columns sit on (and the parts where they meet the roof) to stay upright on the Z axis?

I hope this makes sense?

I was just about to post a sample file that is basically identical :)

Glad you found a solution and thanks for sharing it with the community.

All the best,

Paul
