Composites for mesh

Tinou
Enthusiast

As it was once explaines here : https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Wishes-forum/Use-composites-with-mesh-tool/m-p/177068#M11783

I would like to apply composites to mesh tool.

In my idea, the composite would be added at the top surface of the mesh body, with the same choice of reference level, that exists for slabs.

I know it's possible to create automaticly roofs from a mesh, but it's absolutely not enough parametric.

Mesh composites will be usefull for landscape design elements like roads, path, outside pavings, etc.

Might the object in this thread work for you?

Thank you for this tip. It looks great !

Congratulation to users that were able to create it !

I will test it today.

 

It seems that this object doesn't link to composites atributes. If GS could work on the original mesh tool an apply composites to it, would be nice.

Sorry, it's too complicated and necessary to first create a mesh, then create this object that follows the mesh. (It's still possible with roofs. )

If I change any point of the mesh, I need to do all the process one more time.

GS, We need a parametric mesh tool with composites.

There is a wish for Mesh with constant thickness:
