Curved wall won't SEO from curved ramp

Anonymous

I'm trying to put a low wall following the side of my curved stair. I have a curved wall, and to cut the top off at the slope of the stair I've drawn a curved ramp (Curved Ramp 02 12) with the bottom at the height I want the top of my wall.

SEO works for intersection (as an experiment) but not with subtract with upward extrusion (ramp as operator).

I'd be much obliged for any tips, hints, or clues. Thank you.

Hello Doug,
Some Archicad ramps are not solid so they don't SEO.
Try Olivier Dentan's Rampes Courbes library part.
It is free at his site.

Hello Doug,
Alternatively, you could make your curved wall with the mesh tool.
This will give a sloped top that does not have be SEOd.

Peter, thank you for the ideas. I figure this ramp is solid since I could use it as an operator on the wall with "Intersection".

Olivier's stuff seems to be all in French. Have you used any of it, and is it all in French? It's tricky enough setting settings for objects in my native English!

I haven't used Meshes much, and certainly not for a shape like this. I might look into it if all else fails, but a Wall would be better I think in order to join with some Walls it will meet.

Hello Doug,
If you download Olivier Dentan's Rampes Courbes you will
see that there are several objects and some have parameter
lists in English.

Take a look at Objective.
I can't imagine being without it now.
