Controlling wall joints


I would like to know wether it is possible to preset a Wall Joint type? Or wether there is a Grasshopper-function to change this Joint type, like you can insert a certain Alignement in the Wall Option-function when creating a new wall?

Thanks in advance.



Hi Christophe, it is not possible to preset the wall joint types.This joint type is calculated automatically depending on the styles of the walls and the position where they intersect.
When two walls of the same style meet at their ends, the joint type is set to “Mitter”. When these walls are not the same style the joint is set to “Butt”. When two walls don’t meet at their ends, then the joint is set to “Butt” as well.
You can change these joints afterwards from the properties panel, but this option is not available in Grasshopper.

thanks for the usefull information


Is it still not possible to control wall join types in GH?


Hi Dan, it is not. One of the reasons is that wall joints are not calculated in Grasshopper. Only when you bake the walls, the intersection is done.


Thanks for the reply.
