Hi Jim,
It's because of conterclockwise direction. Cf : Arch_Roof #How_to_use
In Sketch002_br to tl geometry are clockwise direction.

Hi Rockn
nice for BOPCheck !

I think that I already tried to set 3 panes with 90 degrees angle, but I had problems it had abnormal behavior, but at this time I just changed these properties in 2 designs were they were not correct and it works fine.
I don't understand why it was not working, now all is ok... :)
thanks for the tip anyway.

Now why would you do that, is that normal for down unders? :mrgreen:

Of course, perfectly normal down here in upside down tomorrow land! Should seem normal to you to, being a weird "cacky handed" "lefty" :lol:
