I am feeling the need for a special variant on existing tools, especially when modelling plaster or similar finishes.
The structure to be plastered may be complex, making internal and external angles, often non orthogonal, between its surface planes.
15mm thickness of plaster is easily applied by dmExtrude>Create>15, to each surface. These 15mm thick solids will overlap at internal angles, and leave open corners ar external angles.
bimConnect is applied between the 2 sloping soffits descending to A - so far so good.
But elsewhere bimConnect is problematic, and the 15 thick solids' edges are shown pulled back from these connection lines, for clarity.
The connection lines AB, BG and BE cannot be formed without slicing solid F as shown.
Similarly at D.
At C many slices are needed - the large 15 thick solid can't even be formed by Selectionmodes>Boundary Detection because the intersection lines where the beam punches into the wall are not recognised as boundaries.
This comes down to Connect forming infinite connecting planes, so only able to trim a solid to external angles, like a pentagon for example. It cannot trim a solid to re-entrant or internal angles, as at B.
Another problem can happen e.g. at A, where it all may look fine but by moving solids aside you find there's a horrible mess of imperfect intersections. I expect there's a logical order that would get round this but it's into black magic and Workaround. Maybe not important with plastering, but could be critical when a shelled solid is needed.
I would like to se a tool that shells inward (or outward) all the chosen visible faces, automatically connecting edges properly, whether internal or external.
