We are using OpenRail Designer for the majority of our 3d modelling and this generates meshes. The issue we are having is there is not a method in GC to produce a point at the intersection of a mesh, only a surface etc. Converting from a mesh to a bsplinesurface is also not an option as this takes forever and usually does not work. Is there another workflow anyone knows of to get the intersection with a mesh and a curve or plane? Thanks
At the moment there's no direct technique to create a point at the intersection between meshes. But as you have indicated, at the moment, somehow converting the mesh into surface seems to be the only way forward. Would be interesting to know if anyone else has devised a work around.
any update on this whether it is possible now with the latest update?
I don't think this is possible. I recommend you look into Rhino Grasshopper, I have found this to be far superior.
It is certainly possible, just not with the delivered nodes; Bentley have been focusing on the core products rather than building any new tools for GC unfortunately. I will be making my own custom node to do this task soon. With regards to GrassHopper, it certainly is powerful but not a practical workflow if you want to work natively with dgn format.
