How to create building blocks from outline blocks ???

Hello all,

I'm trying to create building blocks from outline blocks, but I'm having some issues where DesignBuilder fails to create building blocks. To me the bizzare thing is that a block of nearly exactly the same geometry, except mirrored, could be converted to a building block without any trouble.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Thank you.

Hi,

If the Outline block intersects any existing Building block then the conversion will fail. The Outline bock intersection needs to be removed eg. using the cutting tool.
The Ghost block tool can be used to identify the intersection.
