generative modeling for Rhino
I am having the exact same issue, and reversing the pattern does not cull the exterior points. This is surely because I am using multiple containment inputs (with a graft), but I have not figured out how to manage the lists effectively to select the points that are not contained. Any input here would be greatly appreciated.
Do you think that this can be done by using one curve container with multiple referenced curves? Imagine if the definition used 100 boxes instead of 2. This is the list management problem that I am having with on the definition above.
I couldn't get the definition to work with multiple containment curves in one parameter. It seems like it should work that way so it may be a bug but it may also just be the limitation of the component. It could also be that we're not using it correctly. Hopefully someone else will be able to comment on this for clarification.
Thanks for the efforts anyway Chris...
I will post a clean definition when I figure out a work around...
The problem is that the component recognizes each curve alone thus resulting in a series of overlapping data to cull when grafted. The solution posted is not the most elegant (having to weave culled lists) but does work if you understand the limits of your definition at the time. Would be easier written VB allowing for change in inputs I bet but here is a temp solution.
Even better yet! This is the exact list management trick that I was looking for.Though seemingly simple, I seriously would have never thought of it...
Very instructive. Thanks Andrew.
