building-blocks edge factor command


building-blocks edge factor f <range>

Apply a sizing factor to zones on edges. The factor is applied to edges in the current <range>, if supplied, or on all edges if not. The factor f must be between 0.001 and 1000.0 (the default is 1.0).

When zones are generated from the blocks, the factor (like a ratio, see building-blocks edge ratio) defines zone sizes of relative length along the edge block. Factor specifies a ratio of last zone length to the first zone length along an edge.

When the factor for an edge is changed, the change is propagated to all face-connected opposite edges. If building-blocks edge ratio-isolate is set to true the changes will not propagate from the edge; the default setting of that flag is false.
