with your kind support i was able to create two grids with columns in Grasshopper while keeping the hight of the columns on the ground floor parametric. Now i would like to add a ceiling and different storeys on top. The idea is to create a model where i can vary the hights of the ground floors and the upper floors as well as the number of the upper floors. Additionally the dimensions of the upper floors should be changeable so the model could be used to explore different terrace ideas fast. Im not looking for an complete solution here but for an idea ho to structure that set of tasks in an reasonable way in grasshopper.
Any idea an hint would be very much appreciated
Kind regards and thanks in advance
You should post your code!! And link to the original thread, or perhaps not even start a new one.
Asking questions and getting answers is what this forum is all about. Although people are generally very helpful, there are things you can do to improve your chances of getting good and quick answers. Below you will find some suggestions, but don’t think of them as rules and especially don’t think of them as guarantees.
1. Choose a descriptive title for your post
Don’t title your question Help! or I have a problem or Deadline tonight!, but actually describe the problem you are having.
2. Be s…
3. Attach minimal versions of all the relevant files

Heres the link to the oroginal thread with the first problem that occured.
Thats my Grasshopper Script so far.

Im sorry for the confusion and hope my problem is understandable.
Thanks in advance and best regards
The best way “to create different stories” in the two buildings is to keep them separate in your data tree structure, as I said in the other thread.
Merging your inputs to DeBrep means that you combined squares and points from two buildings. So you lost a data tree structure that will likely be useful later.
Better to do it this way. CullPt (Cull Duplicate Points) before creating vertical lines means you won’t have any duplicate lines. The data tree structure means you could have different lengths for the two structures. Instead of lines, you could have created square or round columns.

P.S. Not that it makes any difference but the code to avoid duplicate grid points (columns) can be moved inside the Grid Region cluster, adding a ‘P’ output.
Code inside the
Grid Region cluster:
