Is there a way to create clean intersection path from multiple curves?

I have tried many different things but I'm running out of ideas.
Also tried some VDB solutions but but when converting back to poly's I cant get clean geometry.. :'(

Please check the attached file and thanks in advance!

here is a quick test:
hope it helps

edit: another file with more controls
refining faster and smoothing of angles if desired.

version 3 with sidewalks and stuff

I've also added some procedural uv's for the road, now the last thing to do is generate useable uv's for the crossings.. : 8)

That's Clever Way for Intersection

I saw some Tutorials about “Procedural Roads” from cmiVFX ,Maybe you can find some different Tips on it :?

Hey man, sorry for my extremely late response!
I had been very busy lately..

Anyways, I had a few days off so I decided to tackle this issue once more and it is a but more rock solid now! Still not perfect, dont do funny weird stuff.. :wink:

I've also supplied some texxtures to this system.

The file is a bit messy and very complex so beware..

Thanks for pointing this out! I think I've fixed the crash for tomorrow's build, Houdini 16.0.568, though I'm not 100% sure. It crashed for me before I fixed a bug that could have crashed in the Curvesect SOP, and it doesn't seem to crash for me now, so I'm hoping that was the bug.

OK! I tried loading it in 16.0.571 and it works! Whatever you did, a big thanks! Was stuck for ideas on this one in a looong time, still a complete newbie Now I can hopefully get my river geometry far better for the flow maps
