Intersect fails

Why does this array pattern fail to find all the intersects ?

Hi @Keith1634

For some reason, the pattern isn’t really that precise. I don’t know how you made it, but I recreated it, using just one of the polygons (just copying it, using the end snap), and tehe revised version intersects just fine.

Thanks Jakob, that helped.

I used array dist x=1 y=1.732, if I increase y to 1.7321 then Rhino finds the intersect.


In these types of situations, I always try to use object snaps to set the offset distance. Sometimes it means constructing a bit of helper geometry or setting up a few elements in repeating pattern if the array isn’t rectangular.
