I'm modelling and urban section for a residential projet and I now have the full model in a mix of 3D Solids and 3Dfaces. I find that 3DFaces are better to model the landscape parts and irregular surfaces; and besides these were generated from a survey cad drawing.
After a lot of "googling" I've found these different approaches:
1) 3DFACE slicing software like the legacy TAILORS (http://polyface.de/
). I would be nice if someone portes this to current Bricscad
(I've tried it in V11 and it didn't work)
2) converting the 3DFACE into 3dmeshes and converting these into 3Dsolids, again using 3rd party software - tricky and buggy
3) converting the 3DFACE in polylines (using Rakesh Rao
's code (https://forum.bricsys.com/discussion/18911#18917
) and then converting these into REGIONS and finally using 3Dsolids funciotns to section and visualise the wanted view...The problem is that I'm not able to convert severall POLYLINES into REGIONS, I'm can only do it one face at a time....(I'm using V11). Does anyone know if more recent versions of Briscad can do better?
4) I've also to tried using BLENDER to create the sections and then export these to Bricacad, but so far with mediocre results (dispite BLENDER beeing an awsome 3D package)
All approaches are so far tricky or too difficult. I welcome other solutions.
Thanks for any answers,
