Thanks, tuna1957! Thanks, Eric!
I’m testing and learning ways of working in SketchUp (in this case, starting from an 3ds max tutorial). Using Vertex Tools, Fredo Tools on Surface, Fredo JPP, SUbD and V-Ray

Inspired by Speaker and Cotty (thanks! ), testing and learning new ways of working in Blender, SketchUp and Twinmotion

• terrain and alleys created in Blender. Learning new ways to create intersections of multiple roads on hilly terrain (techniques applicable in SketchUp)

• a few test renders in V-Ray for SketchUp

• in SketchUp, preparing the model (textures and components) for Twinmotion

• tests in Twinmotion

• render

Thanks again to @Speaker and @Cotty!

Works for both edges in horizontal planes, not a general solution with two arbitrary edges in space.

Thanks, @Wo3Dan!

For ‘Top View points of intersection’

And with the help of the code created by @CAUL, now we can also find the shortest distance between the two lines, regardless of orientation. Thank you, Anders!

Neat solution, turning to ‘Standard Top View’ in ‘Parallel’ projection
For those without extentions and not having ‘Drape’ available (SketchUp Web Free) you can turn to ‘Intersect Faces with …’. to get the vertically ‘projected’ crossing. See green circle in image:

(draw a vertical edge from face intersection right up to the upper edge, starting somewhere where you get the red inferensing (intersection))

p.s. you can easily pre-create both triangles in the ‘Standard Front View’ in ‘Parallel’ projection.
