As far as I understand there is no generic way to draw pipes and ductwork in va that remains editable in size and other parameters. now my idea was to solve this by using a grasshopper definition and a va Element.
Here is what I tried:
this lets me create a new element and pick a curve to change its path
now if i select the new curve to the right as my element basecurve I get an editable pipe / ductwork
my problem is that in case of changing the path of my pipe, the va element wont update accordingly
also there is no option to turn on controllpoints for the va element
I could relink the curve to the va element each time I update the curve but this seems to become too messy in a complex scene.
Has anyone delt with a similar situation / can ynone think of a smart solution for my problem?
