Stone along a spline in correct rotated direction

Hi.

I want to distribute this granite stone along a spline in the right rotated direction.

How can I do this.?

Hi,

As mentioned in this "Objects to follow the path for preset" tightly related post:

"Currently, the Generate mode doesn't include any option to follow the direction of spline, but the Custom Edit mode includes a similar tool for this purpose: Tree Editor->Creation Tools->Along a Path. It works slightly different, because it creates single items along the path, instead using the area surrounding the spline. You can find more about Creation Tools in our on-lime reference guide."

Hope that helps.

Best regadrs,

Martin

ok. But this does not allow we to follow the spline in a direction where the objects is not rotated.
So I guess this is not possible with forest pack and need to use Railclone instead.

Will this be implemented in the future? I think this is an important feature to have.

Yes, this feature has been implemented in our internal builds, and will be included in Forest 6 (under development actually).

No, it will take some time yet (months).
