Align points and solids with surface


#1

Hi there,

I Imported a surface from revit and i am trying to make a running brick wall.

I managed to get the points in the location i need, but the when i translate points and place cuboids they do not align with the surface.

Can someone help?

@jorge.vieira You’ll need to post the Revit file too

Sorry about that.

Thank you so much for your help Vikram.

The Cuboids aligned nicely, but the geometry translate is still not on the surface.

Is there a way to translate using the surface as a coordinate system?

Many thanks

@jorge.vieira I suppose this should be alright

Hello Vikram!
I tried this on my Wall (I have a Wall that is curve both in plan anda elevation). It align perfectly with my surface. However, the geometry of bricks set does’t work.

Am I doing something wrong?

thank you

This thread has been solved already. It would be better to continue this discussion where it began:


You can reach people on the forum by using the @ tool, but it’s also important to read the forum guidelines first (if you didn’t yet):

Hello, I would like to create a brick facade which curves in plan and section. The Wall grid with bricks above was very helpful as starting point. I would like the bricks to not ‘warp’ though, so that the orthogonal geometry creates a stepping texture across the warped host plane. I assume this is the appropriate thread, I can include an image to help illustrate what I’m looking for if need be, thanks in advance for any help!
