Custome edit
« on: June 19, 2014, 12:45:54 PM »
Hi

I'm using custom edit to place objects along a spline every 12m. Is there away I can control where the objects start. Can set that they all start 2m from the start of the line.

Would i be better doing this in rail clone

Thanks

Hi,

First have to say, that the Creation Tools part under Forest Pack is not so fully developed as RailClone which is much more suitable for tasks like that. Anyway there is workaround how to archive this with help of Spacing Tools (Shift + I).

This allows you to set Start Offset and Spacing needed. I'll recommend you to distribute with Spacing Tools newly created simple plane. Once these reference planes placed correctly, merge these objects into one by applying Edit Poly modifier and in Attach list select all of them. Now this object can be used by Forest Pack under Creation Tools - Reference Objects.

Hope this helps you.

Kind regards,

Thank you for your response. I will look at doing this in Railclone.
