It is certainly a nice looking wall but with featurelines alone there is no intelligence to determine where a bench is needed. How do you know?
I've never been in subassembly composer though I have seen a couple of videos at AU Online. It may do the job but it is beyond me. Since you have the skills could you put it together and show how it works? There have been a couple of other posts like this, so if you get it to work your assembly would be nice to have.
This is one of those cases where I wish we had support from an expert. Better yet, I wish the software didn't require such a complicated solution for a relatively simple task.
Can you post up your alignment, profile, and surface as well? Otherwise we'll just be making stabs in the dark without being able to see exactly what you are running into. You can e-mail it to me if you would rather first name dot last name at cad-1.com
The files were attached in my post on 4/8.
For those who are looking at a corridor solution I think that you might be missing a major issue at the corners. It may be possible to deal with the inside corners but I don't see any way to build the outside corner where the baseline alignment is not perpendicular to the upper walls. The pic below is from Neil's drawing with the frequency turned up to show what happens.
You are dead right on that Steve. It was a concern to me but I felt that issue could be dealt with using infills, though not an ideal solution. Perhaps the offset alignment approach will give a better solution if it can be done efficiently.
The bottom line is corridors or the grading tools need some improvements.
IMHO this type of problem is more suited to grading than a corridor solution. We've both commented previously on the lack of mitered corners for grading objects. I spent some time playing around with how mitered and chamfered corners might be implemented in a future release, and found that it's more difficult that I would have imagined.
It seems like a good idea but as the curves get projected to each tier the fillets become more pronounced. It might be workable though.
