    I’ve developed a GDL part that creates an 2-way array of thin volumes with spacing such that they represent the joints on a panelized exterior building skin. Using SEO, I subtract the GLD object from the exterior walls and I get good joints that I can control somewhat globally.

    But I just discovered that the SEO subtraction also affects doors and windows within the exterior wall. The doors and windows are custom objects. Is there a way to exclude my doors from SEO operations acting on their containing wall using GDL or any other means?

    Possible workarounds:

    • create and place your object as a wall accessory, then you can “leave out” the doors and windows, so your object won’t override the openings.
    • place blocks to your openings, cut your object with this blocks with SEO, and then then use SEO with the cut object and the wall

    Thanks, Gergely. I had assumed that would be my path, but I have to code it window by window. My fantasy was that there would be “SEO-off-for-this-object” switch that would let me solve the problem in a more global manner.
