Re: Splitting sloping walls?

Thanks a lot for this - and mostly for always paying attention to detail and answering every question. But I do feel guilty, it was not my intention to ask you to take the time to make the list. Checking my Pythagoras and basic trigonometry would certainly not do me any harm (even if I embarrassingly had to look up tangent being opposite/adjacent). That said, your explanation is, of course, better. And in any case, it always makes sense to check the maths of lawyers smile (As the joke goes: What can a goose do, a duck cannot, and a lawyer should? - Answer is where they can stick their bill...).

Anyway, this is the image I intended to post, trying to summarise hansmex' and the other posts on slopes and angles. Probably with unforgivable (and possibly erroneous) simplifications...

ok

Re: Splitting sloping walls?

Don't worry, I'm glad you found my answer useful smile
Just a small detail that bothers me on your drawing: visually, the ends of the green line don't seem to measure the top and the bottom of the same wall. You should add a small green line to join the top of intercepting wall. Hope you see what I mean...

Re: Splitting sloping walls?

Yes, it bothered me too. I meant to move the entire green line, but forgot in the haste. Work in progress. To be improved. Thanks.

Hmm, I did update the image, but forgot to link it here, still a rough sketch, though:

Re: Splitting sloping walls?

That's an ingenious but simple workaround

Re: Splitting sloping walls?

A different take on the same issue continued in thread 5953 with an interactive tool: Sloping wall intercept ok
