Wow, over 1200 views and no replies.  I didn't think it was a tough question:-)

I was more thinking along the lines of a clean up tool for drywall kind of similar to the Trim tools where a user would select the relevant walls where the tool would find the overlapping portions of drywall and then automatically remove such overlaps.

Most likely upon regeneration of the wall, these changes could be lost but having to repeat this step to quickly clean up the overlap I think would be fine. At least way simpler than having to manually edit the geometry.

This would avoid the added complexity in the Advanced panel.

I've got an idea but it would involve two more parameters for horizontally offsetting the start and end of the gypsum.  The advanced options menu will get larger but is it worth the added complexity?

Some kind of way to more easily deal with this scenario would definitely be nice.

I haven't quite worked out all of the kinks when it comes to these intersections of walls (usually an exterior corner where an interior wall ties into them).  I will need give this some more thought.

One could use the subtractive feature to remove the drywall, but that is a cumbersome way to do it in my opinion.

There are quite a few tools and icons now.  Be sure to watch as many tutorial videos as you can, this will introduce to more of the tools and get you up to speed quicker.

Medeek Wall Plugin / Re: Materials libray sorting
Last post by Medeek - February 23, 2024, 11:23:24 PM
Currently there is no way to sort however, if you really must sort the list you can actually edit the text file that contains the custom materials.  Editing this list can be done with any text editor like Notepad.  

The material library config file can be found here:

C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Medeek\2023\medeek_wall_ext\library_mats

The file is called MATERIAL_LIBRARY.txt

Just be sure to leave a carriage return after the final material in the list so in case you add any new materials the plugin adds the new material to a new line.
