I've started working through the Quickstart Architecture training and ran into trouble. The doors and windows are not cutting through the gyp board layer of the compound wall I've adjusted the sense distance to be larger than the wall and it still isn't cutting. If I place the window in the opposite direction it works fine. I searched the forum for a clue but didn't see an answer. Can anyone offer any advice? Sorry for such a basic question.
Can you please mention which Compound wall you are using? Also, please share the DataSet you are using.
The wall type is *Example | Brick + || + Gyp
I'm using the US dataset.
I experimented a little more and I can only recreate the problem when using the TrainingTemplate_US. The other metric or US worksets I've tried work fine. Hope that helps narrow down my problem.
Using the US Training Template workset, I just placed a compound wall and then placed two doors and two windows within it, one in each direction, and all of them did generate openings.
Which specific walls, doors and windows are you using?
I was following along with this lesson on the learn server.
It uses the Building Examples workspace and the workset TrainingTemplate_US as a template. The lesson uses the wall type *Example | Brick + || Gyp and the window *Example | Fixed. Any of the doors have the same problem. Curtain walls cut fine.
The example compound walls with brick or cmu which have gyp board on the interior don't cut when the openings are oriented to the exterior. I've tried this on two different computers and get the same result. The metric datasets seem to be ok.
Of course this could also be a case of user error as I'm just starting to learn Openbuildings.
