Line to Beam points output and more in general, points output

(parametricalb) #1

Hello everybody, I was wondering if anyone was having the same doubts about the Line to beam points output, which is said to be in a random order in the manual. In my opinion, it is not!

If lines are plugged to the component, it will always output the start and end points of the lines according to the order they present themselves in the list, right?

Thank You

Hello parametricalb,
the order of points after the LintToBeam-component is not guaranteed. In case of a list of lines which branch off of each other the order of points is harder to predict than if they form a straight polyline. Therefore the recommended way of maintaining a certain order of nodes is to feed a corresponding list into the ‘Pt’-input of the ‘Assemble’-component.
Best,
Clemens
