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 Wessel BArch

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.

Can you post your object here and tell us what modifications you need?

Like I said before I am not able to do this that is why I write this post. 😕

Hello Braza,

Sorry I had not seen your post.
Here the gsm file link : https://bit.ly/2H5qCPE

I need the object to be flexible in its rotation. It can be exclusively a 2D tool which would count within a rectangle a variable number of rectangles without any coming out of this rectangle.

I haven't finished it. But just to be sure you need something like this... At the moment only for 180 rotation (kinda for stairs)

A. Smith you are very kind but I am not able to use it into AC22 and AC23 without understanding why 😕
Did you do this gsm with AC24 ?


With AC24 I'm able to use it without possibility to save my file because I have not my AC24 Codemeter yet.
It seems to be a great answer about my request.
I thought about "purple candle" in 2D plan view to edit this object.

My bad... I did it in AC24 (switched lately from 22)
Here is AC22 gsm file

Awesome that is quite like I'm looking for. I'm going to try to modify it to get 90° too.
The best would be to get the possibility to modify it in plan view with a "purple candle"...
I'm a little GDL beginner so it a little bit a dream for me.

Thanks a lot about your work !

You're welcome.
Are you talking about these dots? Or you don't have them?
I don't know how to do the best so:
1. if you turn on show_worst - you'll be able to modify the left dot (candle), which can change Y direction
2. right dot - change stretcher dimensions

Thanks A. Smith,

I have got these purple dots but they deform the size of the stretchers instead of deforming the volume in which the stretchers must fit. I am looking to develop the option allowing to place these purple dots at the level of the red arrows then to allow the rotation of the stretchers at 90 ° or 180 ° (or more).



I appreciate your script which seems to be clear ! Great.
