BEhaving of Intersection – Walls and Beams


Hello to all!


First, I want to post this image... and you can guess what's the different between lift and right there:






Yes, left I use walls, right there a beams – they intersect basically differently.

In many situations it is necessary that that beams join like walls... such joinings are much more common than bisecting ones.

O.k. in some cases it was posibble to use walls instead of beams.. to get this joinigs... but only in some... and the main missing feature is, that with walls you can have no seperator with the topview.



If we were able to control the kind of intersection, we could do so much more, where we have currently to use 2d-elemnts or 3D-Views.

And maybe with such feature it was easier to handle intersections between angled (and turned) beams.... like here.





The intersection of vertically and sloped walls (yes of course, they can't have different height on start and end...) shows that there is "more"possible


And the last for now:
If it was possible to have beveled ends for beams also in the xy-plain we could control such joinings manually..
... and for automatic intersection it was helpful to set the priority not just for the whole element, but for the ends... and even better for the end of every skin.
