Is there someway to extract the location of Hotspots within a Complex Profile?
I am using a Complex Profile as an operator in a SOE operation and would like to be able to use HOTSPOTto define snap points. Being able to identify the Hotspot with the greatest Y / lowest X value would be a bonus.
I am not sure if this is of any help but there are a couple of REQUESTs for Profile geometry.
n = REQUEST ("Profile_default_boundingbox", name_or_index, xmin, ymin, xmax, ymax)
Returns the 2 defining coordinate point of the original bounding rectangle relative to the origo of the profile identified by name or index. Expression returns 0 and contains dummy return values (emtpy string or 0) if used in parameter script, causing additional warning. Compatibility: introduced in ARCHICAD 21.
Returns the original geometric data of the profile identified by name or index. Expression returns 0 and contains dummy return values (emtpy string or 0) if used in parameter script, causing additional warning.
I have not tried using them.
I don't know any way of determining the position of a hotspot in a profile.
