Hi All,

I’ve been creating a simple stud wall panel that has three pre-determined heights 2.4m (2.44m), 3m (3.04m) and 4m (4.04m).

When increasing the height the nogin component repeats in the Z direction correctly using the following.

nogin z position

=(((copy+1)/(Copies+2))*StudwallPanel!WallHeight)-StudwallPanel!NogginHeight/2

Behaviors

Hidden =StudwallPanel!WallHeight<100

Copies =Floor(StudwallPanel!WallHeight/80)-1

I copied these formulas form a lynda course tutorial on sketchup components for a bookcase and just altered the numbers slightly as a trial and error process (100 & 80)

but what do these numbers mean?

The spacing between noggins a would like is roughly 347mm

Please can anyone explain these formulas, so I can use them correctly in the future.

Many Thanks

Adam
