Problem to join two different lines


Hi @user270
Post a file!

Hi -
When Jakob asked for a file, he meant a 3dm file, not a screenshot.
Also, try to explain what you want to do - to me, it’s not at all clear just from that image.

In rhino 7 the program doesn’t recognices the end of the lines so i can’t join things 2 differt lines, or the edge of a cube, even if i have all the refobj options correctly, mind anybody tell how can i fix it?

I can’t join the line that i am making with the one i have already made
Can’t join the 2 lines.3dm (22.1 KB)

There is no problem drawing a new line segment between the two existing lines in your files, and then Joining them.

Then i suppose it has to be something in the options, do you have any idea of what it may be?

I’m not aware of anything in Rhino Options that might cause this behavior.

Perhaps a video in a new file that shows that specific steps you are following would help.

Please go very slowly and be very deliberate in your clicking so we can follow it.
It’s particularly hard because of the language difference.


Can’t join 2 diferent (2.5 MB)

As you can see in the video, even if I have the RefObj option activated, I can’t even join a line to the end of another one that I had just made.

Hi -

The zip file that you uploaded doesn’t contain a video. It only contains a mht file that shows several steps of a process with a short comment and a picture.

I can’t say that I understand all the steps that are in that document - e.g. how you got from step 12 to step 13 - but, overall, it shows that snapping works.

You end up with this one:

That is not the same as the 3dm file you uploaded earlier.
Are you then trying to create another line between some of these points?

Also, I see that you are using Rhino 7.1 - Please update to the current version, which is 7.12.

I can’t join those 2 lines with another line

Activate Snap “Cerca” (Bottom left)

Hi -

Please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and copy-paste the result here.

Can you make me a guide of how to make that like eddi did, i have it in spanish and i can’t find that option.

  1. Copy and paste inklude underscore, so Wim can look if You not have a broken build

  2. Settings for Osnap Baloon with command line.
