Hi to all,

I am searching a way to beautify these crossroads where 3 primitives overlap.

Can someone point me out a way to achieve this ? Thanks !

For the crossings it is advisable to set up a separate procedure. As a mere by-product of the road generator you will hardly get satisfactory results.

Best you split the procedure into these parts:
  • Entire road network represented in curves
  • Separation of curves into cross roads and roads
  • Road generator
  • Cross roads generator

Thank you very much for your help !

@Kontantin : I get it… still have to wrap my head around Houdini's way of doing things. I'll work on the cross road generator then.
@goldfarb, the crossroad part of the tutorial is a bit too advanced for me right now but I get the principle. I'll try to cook something from there.

Have a good day!
