Fingers crossed someone can tell me if this is possible.

I would want to drive the X Size (height) of the Linear 1S2 in the attached screen grab to be the distance of the Linear 1S2 start to the surface of the plane.

Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, thanks for the contacting us.

Please take a look at the attached file. I uses an expressions to find the Z position of the segment on the spline to drive the size of a nested generator. The length is actually in relation to the RailClone's position in world spave. The plane is just for illustration.

I hope it helps, please let me know if you have further questions.
