Vusta. This is a great match. I'm gonna see if I can patch what I've got with your solution.


Thanks Guys.

Update to follow.



Houdini rocks, just takes time to learn the nodes I guess.

Hi Team,

I'm a new Houdini user (2 months in) and I have a problem that I'm trying to solve without making the solution too completed.

I'm trying to procedurally group all corners into a group, then top geo, and bottom geo after. I thought maybe the use of the Group Create node with a loop through all the top Primitives with a combination of BBox and YMAX to isoloate the top primitives/points and then use a ray sop to test if there is any geo in below the -Y axis. This would get me only so far, but there is geo below most allot of the adjoining connecting plates.

I cant seem to find a similar example online to work from.

I thinking maybe there is some ‘Houdini Kung-Fu’ that the Masters might be able to assists in recommending a better approach.



To summarize, I'd like to break up the geo into sections of columns, then top geo connectors, and bottom geo connectors.

Any help with this one would be great.

Many thanks in advance.
