Cut extrusions if crossing a wall

#1

Hi @ all,

I am looking for a solution to cut extrusions (or detail items) by the walls of a room. For my example: the circle should not cross the walls
example_wallcutting
Is there any way to solve this using Dynamo?

Thanks in advance for any input!

Cheers,
Martin

I’m still on it… Is there no chance?


#3

join geometry?
what is your circle?


#4

The circle is a detail item, which is nested to the family. It illustrates the detection area of an electrical device.

Detail items can’t flex like that. A cylindrical extension intersected with the room geometry could though.
