Looking for a stretcher tool

Hello,

I've made my own stretcher tool with gdl. script but this one does not suit me beecause I am not able to create a good parametric stretcher tool.
I have not found any tool like this into BIMcomponent.

Does anyone have got a stretcher-tool.gsm to share ?

What would you like a stretcher tool to do?

Ralph,
Something like this tool I have created with gdl script but I do not like it because it does not works and I am not able to create the one I want. 😕

Is that a vehicle turning circle?

Ralph,

No it does not deals with a vehicule but just a object/tool which is able to draw in plan how this kind of element can turn in stairs or in thin corridors.


I have already made a gdl tool but my script is not good and I always prefer to draw each rectangle one by one to be able to get a good result. I am looking for a stretcher tool I have not found into BIMcomponent.

Ah - ok. I didn't understand the question at first. I'll check with our GDL team if they've handled something like that before.

Thanks ralph,

I have tested some car or lorry object/tool but stretchers have ni roue no wheel or turning radius. 😕

Well, in a way they do, at each corner with no rotational limit. So if you can find a vehicle object that you can modify, you could just see if you can shift the reference points.

Sorry, no – we don't have anything to fill that specific role.
