Intersections of faces produce edges but not a separate face: example1.skp
- It’s not a small face issue, I double checked
- Intersect Faces -> Intersect with Model -> no changes
The same issue:
- Why does it happen?
- Is there any way to fix it (get a separate face from intersections) using Ruby SDK?
- Is there any way to detect such situations using Ruby SDK?
I think for some reason the lines are not exactly touching the faces. You can fix it by selecting the lines, Cut, Paste in Place. You may have to redraw a line or two to heal it after that, but the faces will be good.
- cut and paste all faces
- redraw all edges
But nothing helped. Could you try with my SKP in the original post?
I checked all vertexes via API - they are on the face
I guess I’d have made the dormer without the horizontal face inside to start with. That would make it easier to make the hole in the roof.
I have a lot of such elements in many modesl and it will take a lot of time to find and fix it manually. I tried to use Solid Inspector2 and RubyAPI to automate the cleanup process, but I need to intersect faces somehow first. Is there other way except manually remove and then add edges?
I did use your model, and it was Paste in Place I was saying to do. Paste is unlikely to put it back in the right place. Dave has a simpler work around.
Not sure what introduces the issue.
