Sorry about that, like I said I’m new here. And I doubt this would be helpfull if I join the .gh file or rhino because th .gh file is link to a shapefile from which I extract metadata (informations)3D_site_Halles_v2.3dm (16.6 MB) 3D_site_analysis_V1.gh (29.6 KB)
I give up! Can’t explain it over and over every day to people who don’t bother to read the forum a little bit before their first post, and who believe they know better about what is relevant to finding solutions.
It’s boring to us old-timers who see it twelve times a day, but it’s entirely new for every first poster. We’ve had the missing-referenced-data problem since forever and actually when you think about it it’s more of a bug in the *.gh file format than the fault of new users.
Everyone is allowed to not know something and make at least one mistake before being judged, the problem is the small number of judges vs. the large number of ‘first offenders’.
Anyway that’s the old thread in the old Forum in the old days that I had in mind (but the solution is 1M miles away from some really effective one [A Jack for all trades, that is, for every case … etc etc] NOR is written having big N of breps in mind NOR …
I know David, and I’m sorry for being so touchy and impatient about this. McNeel employees are paid to grin and bear it while the rest of us are here for fun. Many of the volunteer old-timers handle it more gracefully than I do by just ignoring these threads completely. Some are very patient at re-explaining the same few things over and over. Where I lose it is when the new person tries to argue that posting the GH model and/or geometry isn’t relevant, when in fact, they have no idea what is relevant!
Maybe there should be some kind of required test to prove that new people have read the page about How to ask effective questions before being allowed to post on the forum?
By the way, it’s not ideal that the primary link to that page from here lands at the bottom (end) instead of the top (beginning) of the page. Also, in item #3 of that list ( 3. Attach minimal versions of all the relevant files), there is a line on the old forum that is missing from the new forum:
It is especially a good idea to post files that don’t require any non-standard components if at all possible. Not everyone has Kangaroo or Hoopsnake or Geco installed so if your file relies on those components, it might not open correctly elsewhere.
Hi Laurent (or anyone else on this string),
This looks like a trick that could be useful for a grouping challenge I am working on. Trying to group lines based on a shared endpoint (rather than bbox center). The Point
Groups gives the right groups, but I am unsure how to then use that list to select the groups of lines. Any suggestions?
Eventually, I want to pipe and boolean the groups of lines.
Hi Laurent. I recreated it without the line coloring (attached). What you showed definitely works to put the lines into groups. Unfortunately, I’m still working on my understanding of Lists and Groups in Grasshopper. Can you show how you would pipe each of these groups and then SolidUnion them in their groups? line group question_3_Laurent.gh (28.2 KB)
I have tried a couple of things in the attached file, but having no luck. At the moment, I can specify a specific path and pull out one cluster of lines. But I know that’s more tedious than necessary.
