Dear Modelur-Team,


on a building block I used the push/pull tool and recessed the top storey on all four sides in order to make the top storey smaller and have a terrace going all around. With terraces on three sides all is fine, but pushing the fourth one seems to produce additional faces. Please have a look at the attached image. Maybe I'm doing something wrong or maybe it is a bug?

Best wishes
Mikar

P.S. I found out the extra faces are toggled on/off by the "Show Built-up Area" option. However I find it strange they appear outside the building when it is not on axis.

Hi Mikar,

thanks for your feedback. This is a bug, which has already been fixed.
I assume you are using Modelur 0.4.5 from Extension Warehouse?

Please download Modelur 0.4.5 from our website, we've just updated it a few days ago. Soon we will also update the version on Extension Warehouse, but we are still fixing some small bugs for the upcoming SketchUp 2016... and we do not want to burden SketchUp team all the time with small fixes. :-)

Hope that helps,
Jernej

I assume they are outside the building because of the bug?

Cheers,
Jernej

Hi Jerney,

okay, the version from your website works very well, there bug I described above is not there any more. Thank you.

One other thing: I followed the Proximity Check tutorial video on your website, but I don't seem to have the Parameters of normatives flyout in Modelur. Is it no longer part of Pre-Beta 0.4.5 or maybe hidden somewhere?

Best wishes
Mikar

P.S. Many thanks for your quick responses and ongoing support, very much appreciated :-)

Hi Mikar,

yes, tutorial videos are a bit old and some parameters have changed their location during the development...

You can find two parameters for distance check in Input data > Plot parameters > Distances:
  • Minimal distance to height ratio is used to set the dynamic distance which is calculated from building height. If ratio is 1:4 and building is 20m high, the distance is 5m (20/4), if building is 30m high, the distance will be 6m, etc
  • Minimal distance between two buildings is the absolute minimal distance. No buildings should be closer than that or they get warned.

One thing to note - if you snap one building right next to the other, they will not be warned as Modelur thinks that they actually represent the same complex...


Hope that helps,
Jernej
