Know the Orientation of Compound Walls (inside or outside)

Hi everybody,

I would like to know the Orientation of Compound Walls.
I tried to know this orientation with the room, but it’s not working all the time.

I thought I would use point_inside_poly from matplotlib, but install a python librairie is complicated.

Thank you for your help,

See if Wall.Orientation (Clockwork) gives the result you need

I used it.

When I change the orientation of compound walls, the sign change from positive to negative or negative to positive.

I have no way of knowing the position to the outside or to the inside.

Orientation compared to what? Rooms?

Wall.Orientation obviously gets the global orientation of a wall but if you need to compare that to a room you might have to try offsetting your wall curves to see if they end up inside a room or not.

It could be coupled with the use of the vector given by the Wall.Orientation node. Information can easily be found through the search field on this topic, see for instance:
