Error happens in extract floors
« on: October 21, 2016, 04:27:24 pm »


when I click on extract floor this error message appears: The slope of the chosen face exceeds the maximum allowable slope.
But Indeed my surfaces doesn't have any slope and entire my model is horizontal at zero degrees.
here I attach a path file.

This was answered via support email but I wanted to include the answer here just in case someone else had a similar issue.

This particular model uses the Y-axis as the "up" axis. Pathfinder assumes that up and down go along the Z-axis. The fix is use the Rotate Objects tool to rotate the imported model 90 degrees about the X-axis.
