Get velocity Vector from nearpoint


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I'm a bit lost on this one,

I've got lines growing in a solver, when those lines intersect, I'm trying to get the velocity vector of the closest point set as the new velocity for the intersecting lines.

I'm getting the right result for the first intersecting point but the following one is getting the former direction and snaps back to the original direction, even tho the intersection is still happening according to the spreadsheet.

The aim is to get the intersecting line to follow the other one in a parallel manner.

Hip file here:  intersect_contour.hip

Any insight is welcome!


thanks a lot,
