  1. I'm snapping a path along a terrain and then using that path in a sweep node as a backbone curve to generate a wall. The problem I'm running into is that the sweep is following the tangent of the terrain normals and creates a warped look in the corners that's accentuated with increased height. I tried to correctly orient the cross sections in the sweep node by using an orientalongcurve node with the snapped path in input 1 and the pre snapped path transformed higher in y for input 2. That works more or less for the longer portions of the wall but still results in warped corners. Since this is a wall and not a roller coaster, is there a way to force the cross sections to always be oriented straight up in y while still following the snapped path around the terrain? My assumption is that this would fix the corner issue, but I'm very new to Houdini so I may be going about this all wrong. Any help would be very appreciated.
  2. how can I select the very corner points base on their normal direction? I'd like to know the different way of how to this I've attach the file, ps. I'm new to Houdini. normaldirection.hipnc
  3. Hi, Im creating a façade of a building, the lower part of the building can have indents. on these indents another model needs to be placed. Also on the corner, a corner model needs to be placed. to specify the placement I simply use points with a copysop. These points vary from position on the Z-axis to randomize the indents and corners. I have made an example for just a representation of how it could look. The method used can be ignored. I have tried to solve this issues by creating a pointVOP and setting the distance by using a constant. This didn't work. I have no idea what I'm doing . Another approach to solve it is to detect if a point has a neighbour by selecting it with a box. Again. I have no idea what i'm doing. I hope I'm clear enough. I hope someone can help me thanks in advance Model detection.hipnc
  4. Does anyone have an ellagant solution to the Corner UV Problem when working with sweep surfaces. I've attached two images illustrating the problem and a Hip File. I build the UV's using rows and collumn approach, but when creating things like corners I need to pinch separate the inside corner verts. a Procedural solution is needed as I don't know what the corner angle may be. thanks in advance for your thoughts. Cheers, kni uv_sweep.hip
