Subdividing Static Shapes

Tool execution

This tool computes the geometry of lots by recursively subdividing shapes (blocks). A variety of parameters can be used to achieve different subdivision types. The tool can be executed on static shapes of shape layers.

The same algorithm is also available for dynamic street block subdivision, see Creating Shapes from Graph Networks. In that case, the subdivision can be controlled through the Block Parameters in the inspector instead of the dialog shown below.

To execute the tool, select a number of static shapes and choose Shapes→Subdivide.... The following dialog is shown:


Details on the parameter values can be found on the block subdivision page.
