(API) macro for correcting nodes position by defining the path

Hello, collegues!

 

Sometimes there is the situation (espessially if model was exported from Revit) when nodes which have to be located in the same plane are not fulfil this condition and this provide some problems (for example, Robot cannot distribute load from cladding, etc.)

 

In this situation you can use standart Robot tool - Advanced correction, but it moves nodes into the plane only by surface normal and in case of not orthogonal geomentry some adjoined parts of model can be hurted (like chain reaction).

 

So, I've tried to make some macros that correct nodes geometry and moves them into the plane by defined path. 

 

For better understanding of macros' idea I've made a two short videos that shows differences between standard Robot tool (Robot Correction.wmv) and correction with macros (Excel Correction.wmv).

 

You can download them by link: http://www.4shared.com/zip/JJ4sdOmace/PLANE_CORRECT.html

 

Feel free to download and use, comments and modifications!

Hi @igos,

Stole your macro and add the possibility to define the origin of the path for correction using local X axis of the selected bar. The modified macros attached.
