overlapping corners elements
« on: January 05, 2016, 04:46:15 PM »
Is there anyway I can avoid overlaping geometry in corners:

Hi,

Please find attached a revised style that fixes the corner issue. I've made the following changes:

  • Changed the Z Alignment of all segments to Center. Other Axes are set to Automatic.
  • If you want to adjust the wall in relation to the Base Spline you can use the Generator's Y Offset property.
  • Reset the Corner segment's X Rotation to 0 degrees.
  • Turned off Generator > Properties > X Corner > Align to Path, This will stop the corner segment rotating 45 degrees on the corner which is why I removed the rotation in the previous step.
  • Turned on Generator > Properties > X Corner > Extend to Side. This will ensure the corner extends to the bottom row.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have further questions.

Many thanks!

Paul
