Is anyone using Flex Tools with Profile Builder? How do you get round the issue that Flex Tools strongly prefers the walls to be components if adding a window for example, whilst Profile Builder uses groups?
I’ve tried simply ignoring the Flex tools warning and inserting into groups but it is erratic and odd behavious can result. Flex tools do not recommend this approach and I would agree.
Conversely I’ve also tried converting the Profile Builder groups into components (Thom Thom’s Convert Groups to Components is best rather than Flex Tools doing it as I’ve found as the resultant naming is better). This works but then the Profile Builder geometry is no longer editable with the dialogue and becomes ‘dumb’ geometry.
In the absence of a fix, the latter approach is still worth doing in my view, as being able to use Flex Tools ability to cut multi-layer walls combined with Profile Builder’s fast creation of the walls (after the profile is built) is fantastic. It would however be great if there was some way to get both extensions to work as they were intended when used together. Has anyone found a solution, or if the authors are reading this, any chance of addressing this issue either jointly or separately as it would strongly benefit both extensions in my view?
