Using markers with "Extend X/Y Size to Area"
« on: November 08, 2019, 11:46:08 AM »
Is it possible to get information from markers when using "Extend X/Y Size to Area"?
I didn't find a way to make it work.

If for example I want to make a window-style based on rectangles in the facade, can I add information with markers?

That is not intended marker use. When using Clipping splines RailClone works in different way that markers do not have effect.

There's a workaround which makes it possible to use both "Extend X/Y Size to Area" and markers.
If you put an A2S-generator using "Extend X/Y Size to Area" on a marker of a L1S-generator and use these arithmetics in the x and y-sizes of the A2S generator it works:


x-size
Code: [Select]
Return Linear_1S2.XSectionLength+Linear_1S2.XSectionNextLength;
y-size
Code: [Select]
Return Linear_1S2.XSplineLength/2-(Linear_1S2.XSectionLength+Linear_1S2.XSectionNextLength);
