Hiding colliding objects

hey there! i’m trying to put some objects on a roof to get the number of photovoltaic modules. im building the pv modules in grasshopper with linear array and want to hide the modules where they collide with 3D objects done in rhino. any ideas?

You could use Clash in R7.

thanks a lot! it works :slight_smile:

but i have another problem: it just represents the clashing objects but not the objects which are completely overlapping

The fastest way - my a million miles - to do that is to compare RegionContainment in Curves (where these are the coplanar footprints of your things [modules/obstacles]). See attached.

PS: I’m not familiar with native components - at all - but I guess that is also doable.

Have a try Collision One/Many.
