Re: ShapeBinder Question

Not being a coder or expert, I observe the following: The local coordinate system of Target and that of Source are different, in that XY_Source is parallel to XZ_Target. As a result (apparently) XY_Shapebinder originating from Source is projected perpendicular to XZ_Target. In stead, you want it par...

Re: Intersecting faces

Wow.

Indeed. I misunderstood your advise (tried it, in the wrong way).

Thanks!
