Im trying to group rebars which are closer to the “Exterior” or the “interior” faces of the walls. I have developed a simple script shown below which uses the concept of surface thickening and using geometry intersect option to group them.
The problem with this is that, the thickened surface also comes into contact with the perpendicular walls, which messes up the process where there are “T” junctions in the model.
Is there a way to just thicken one side of the surface instead of both the sides. My ultimate aim is to isolate 2 layers of rebars in one side of the wall, so that i can apply some parameters to them.
Any help would be great!
