Creation of Shapes from Graph Networks

Overview

Graph Networks can automatically create shapes, i.e. lots and street shapes;

To enable or disable shape creation, use the shapeCreation parameter at the block, street or node parameters in the inspector. By default, shape creation is enabled.


Input: A graph network. Output: Lots and street shapes.

Shape Creation Parameters

Lots and street shapes can be controlled through the corresponding parameter panel in the inspector. Alternatively, the Street Tool can be used to edit street widths or setup curve handles.

For each loop in the graph network, a block is automatically created, see What are Street Networks.

Object Attribute Inheritance

Note the italic font for inherited attributes in the inspector:


Left: A standard attribute of a graph segment. Right: The (same) inherited attribute of the corresponding street shape.

UV Coordinates

UV coordinates are generated for each shape. They can be used for UV Splits and texturing. For details of the UV coordiantes, see Street and Intersection Shape UVs.
