Re: [Question #697783]: BoxFactory for creating spheres on periodic conditions


Question #697783 on Yade changed:

Jérôme Duriez posted a new comment:

To rephrase what your computer already told you:

- use of BoxFactory involves a hidden call to
InsertionSortCollider::probeBoundingVolume [*]

- that function does not support periodic boundaries [**]

=> you indeed need an alternative script, or to modify source code and
extend InsertionSortCollider::probeBoundingVolume to periodic boundaries
(which would improve Yade)
