max segments warning - but I'm below limits
« on: July 22, 2021, 05:20:25 PM »
I keep getting the max segments warrning on this object, but stats tells me it's well below the limits I have set - 1380/50000

Am I totally misunderstanding what it's telling me?

Do you only get this error while you're editing the spline? On occasions, I've seen occasional glitches when editing where RC momentarily creates more geometry.

Ok, so I've had a chance to have a closer look at this model. Don't judge me, I know the graph is a mess, blame the architect!
Segments only at 1277 for the exterior, but it's still kicking up a warning.

If you wouldn't mind having a quick look, Paul, and see if you can see anything obvious?

Hi,

Thanks for the file. I've narrowed the issue down to the large bottom padding value used for the balcony segments. I'm not 100% sure why it should cause this error, but for now, I would recommend removing it. You can then add the Segments to the Generator's Bottom input and use the Y Fixed Translate value to move the geometry into position instead. Please see the attached file for an example.

I hope it helps.

Best,
Paul.

Excellent, thanks for that! Yes probably not an ideal methodology I'd used looking back at it.
