Align to Path on one corner but not all
« on: July 17, 2020, 08:38:58 PM »
Hello!
 
I am trying to fix a specific corner to a spline but I want to keep align to path off for only one corner as getting it to line up otherwise is extremely difficult. Is it possible to just turn off align to path for one corner? I tried using an expression based on vertex type to turn on or off align to path but it didn't seem to work, is this expression only able to be turned on for the entire path?

Thanks!

Hi,

Using another Generator (placing the Segment just for the desired vertex with the help of the Conditional Operator) for this purpose would be recommendable. Under Generator's Rules - Corner you can define the Vertex Type - this should correspond to the vertex type of that specific corner (it can be easily modified from the quad menu). That should do the trick. Please find attached a possible style set-up. I hope that helps.

Best regards,

That's brilliant. Thank you so much!
