Im so glad we have a website where people really help each other. 

Im coming across a problem, Im making a brick facade and i want to extrude a set of planes(bricks) according to distance from a surface. 

iv made a grasshopper def that is theoretically correct but it isn't executing...

on extrusion it only extrudes some of the brick planes but not all.
If i put a panel to check the output from D (distance between point and closest point on surf) of srf cp, many items come out as null!!

btw if i graft the d on srf cp it selects a whole new area

please help asap! i have a submission and im freaking out!!

Tags: architecturebrick extrusionextrusionhelpsrf cp

here is the gh file 

here are images from rhino

this is the surface i used in srf cp

these are the planes i want to b extruded according to distance from surface

these are all the extruded rectangles i get!!

Ps- the problem is not with the surface being too low, it is not. and i have tried it with different surface with more hieght too.

Please, cut the filter name, they take a lot of space on the small screen of my laptop.

Bob -
Absolutely! There are a number of us that have been pushing to increase the use of Rhino in our office, and the news of "RhinoBIM" made us all salivate like Pavlov's dogs. Once Rick's back in town, let's definitely get together. I'll wait for your call.

Also, my wife is a sculptor, and picked up a copy of Rhino after hearing me sing its praises. (Of course, now she has her own in-house computer technician!)

Talk to you, soon.

Conference sounds interesting. I've been playing around with Processing and Arduino. Does grasshopper integrate with either or both of these?
