Hello good day,

I would like to know exactly the difference between these shading conditions in Project Settings:

- Discriminating orient difference between shading planes
- Maximum orient difference for defining average spread orientation

What do they stand for?
For instance, I am working with shading scenes imported from T3 in a non-flat terrain (real topo scene). By default the system brings me to define +8 orientations. But I would like to define 3-4 main orientations and distribute them in 3-4 subarrays (unless terrain is very flat, which i prefer to define 1 average orientation-slope)

Dont know if i have explained...

- Discriminating orient difference between shading planes
I believe this can be thought of as the resolution to which PVsyst will define a unique orientation based on the difference with other sheds

- Maximum orient difference for defining average spread orientation
This parameter will be used to define the range for which an average value will be calculated and used for transposition.

Thanks Dtarin,

I m getting now the discriminating factor, eg if you have only 2 tables and they differ each other 1° if you choose 2° the system will consider them equal, but if you set it to 0,5° there will be 2 different orientations.

Concerning the other condition i stll have doubts. So if, going to the hereabove example, you add a third table wihich differs the other 2 more than 10° and you choose limitation of 10° what happen?
