Hi

I'm new here and have just started using the trial version.  It hasn't taken long for me to work out much of this amazing software.

I have but one question, I am trying to generate buildings, some being on a slope.  I understand I can extrude ( when on a slope ) world up, but I want to have the roof plane aligned horizontal to the world, and also have floors created levelled to the world horizon as well.

Can anyone offer a solution to this issue?

Hi,

you could do this (build a base first) :

Lot -->
    alignScopeToAxes(y)
    LotAligned(scope.sy)

LotAligned(yDim) -->
    extrude(world.y, 1000)
    split(y) {yDim: BaseVolume | ~1 : NIL}

BaseVolume -->
    comp(f) {side: BaseWall | top : ContinueToExtrudeBuilding.}

There's of course more solutions. Maybe post an image of what you need.

Ok ?
