Add GDL to Custom Object to subtract wall around it

gdford
Advisor

Are there any examples of GDL script that can be added to a custom object that will remove the volume of the object from a wall the object is placed in? And if so - would that be more/less/same overhead from just doing a solid element operation?

Apart from the opening tool:

1.Draw a slab of a shape You need.

2.Assign "wallhole" ID to it

3.Save as a window

As a GDL object, it has to be a door, window or opening sub-type.

If there are only a few, I don’t think there would be much difference in overhead.

But if there are many, I think SEO will be more overhead.
