I have an issue similar to the one above. But I haven’t really found a good resolution for it, so I’m asking again, if you don’t mind.
I’m trying to use Solid Union to unite the trapezoidal prisms into the rest of the body. I split the trapezoids first and then recapped them. SolidUnion works for some of the objects but not the others. In particular, SolidUnion is failing with the element circled in red (list item #3 in the gh definition). It works in Rhino with BooleanUnion though, so I’m a bit confused about that.
I included my original unsplit trapezoids along with the surfaces I used to split them, which came from the larger Brep. I extended them within gh using a definition from someone else (attached as well).
Would you recommend another method instead of relying on SolidUnion? I’m guessing I’d have to split/trim a bunch of the surfaces and then knit everything back up. Seems cumbersome, though.
