[Solved] Biber Joinery - Facated Paneling

New Member

Hi all, 

I'm working on a project where we're building formwork for some faceted GFRC benches we are going to cast with a terrazzo finish. 

I've been using biber to generate the formwork panels and the edge connectors. All surfaces on the Breps are planar. I'm having a bit of trouble getting this to work correctly. 

Bench 1 - doesn't cap the end of the bench. Prob can do something in Rhino post GH.

Bench 2 - returns the error '1. Solution exception: An item with the same key has already been added.' in the assembly node. 

Bench 3 - works well but returns the error '1. Unable to create a solid geometry 2, this shell is left as open shell.' 

Would love some thoughts on how to troubleshoot. Thanks all!

For some reason, the GH file was never attached. Leaving it here.

@dticker1 I received your file.
Bench1 : the face at the end is not planar, Biber works only with planar faces.
Bench2 : I was not able to bake your Brep. I could not even see it in preview, could you please send me the rhino file you can rename the layer for each Bench
Bench 3 : was not internalized 
one important point , please keep the objects near the origin when working with Biber, objects far from origin are error prone.
