generative modeling for Rhino
I'm working on a small definition that seems pretty straightforward. However I'm at a dead end and would really appreciate someone's advice on this. I'm a bit of a newbie still.
I want to draw section lines on a lofted brep (of a tower which is in the Rhino file) at every floor level.
floor levels are defined by a series of xy planes that have been arrayed up the z axis. Floorlines are being drawn by intersecting the Brep with these planes.
It only returns a few floorlines, and they're discontinuous around the tower.
I've tried the following:
- Using planar surfaces instead of xy planes. Same error results.
- Exploding the Brep and intersecting the a) faces or the b) edges separately with the planes, or planar surfaces. Different errors result.
- Baking the brep (a live loft in my file) doesn't help.
- I've tried flattening/grafting inputs to the section component.
Got some advice that the problem could be the loft, so I rebuilt the tower with 6 faces using Srf4pt components. I was able to get a few more floorlines, but not even 50%.
I then tried the definition on a simple 6 sided polygon extrusion, and it worked fine, all floorplates were created. So the problem has something to do with this 6 sided form I created...
