I am creating stiffeners for a bridge deck - I do this by:
- divide curve - edge of deck
- project points - across deck to other edge
- simple line - a to b
When one of these is within a tolerance of the crank (one side of the deck splays out at each end) I require this to be at the crank (and not its current position).
When this is above the tolerance I need both stiffeners.
I can tackle this but I can only see a very clumsy, untidy way of doing. Can anyone suggest a smart way of doing this? (attached image should help if question isn’t clear)
edit: I think drawing the line at the crank, running a check against the rest of the stiffeners to find the nearest stiffener (min delta X value), eval x < tol, true: remove item index from (can’t think of this component) false: nothing
