Hello Dynamo community,
I started off this workspace in a previous post (see picture below), and it got lots of attention. After over 20 posts, I have been stumped, and decided to make a new topic on my specific problem - This way, the community doesnt have to scroll through post upon post to grasp what I’m now trying to achieve.
In short, my workspace selects a given element based on the comment it has (in my case - doors that have the comment - Access Control Door). It then selects all these elements, and creates a front and back section view of them. I’ve gotten the workspace to create section views at all the doors I want it to (with the correct naming), but the way it looks on the floor plan/section view is what I’m not happy with. Here is where my 2 problems are that I need help with before I can be happy with the end result;
It creates both section views (front and back) directly on top of each other (see picture 1 below). I have my first slider which allows me to put an offset to my section, but it seems to offset them both the same way, rather than each one offsetting opposite directions (see picture #1) I am wondering if there is a way for me to set offsets on each of the section views individually so that they both offset to the right direction like picture #2? If so, how would I go about doing this?
My 1st slider also increases the space that the section view see’s. The bigger the number on my offset slider, the bigger the view gets in all directions. Problem is, the bottom offset is too long, I only need to show acouple inches below the door. Is there a way I can offset the bottom so that it shows just a few inches below the bottom of the door (rather than well into the second floor like picture 3)? If so, how would I go about doing this?
Door Workspace - Sorry its all bunched up, I had to shrink the size so that the text showed:

Picture 2 showing what I would like my section views look like on a floor plan when running my script:

Thanks for taking the time to read through my issue, hopefully with the communities help, we can complete this
