You are here: Geometric Operators > LineJoiner


Takes lines and connects them to form longer lines. Each connecting line must meet at the exact same start/end point, but otherwise they must not intersect.

Any nodes with only two lines connecting to them (sometimes called pseudonodes) are removed. Lines remain broken at points where three or more converge.

Note: Duplicate lines passed into the transformer will be consumed by the transformer.

Usage Notes

  • If the data might contain intersecting lines, consider running it through the Intersector before connecting this transformer.
  • On common vertices between joined lines, the LineJoiner maintains z-values and measures from the subsequent line.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
