!Evenly object" direction
« on: April 06, 2020, 11:14:23 PM »
Good evening guys,
sorry to bother as always.
I'm building a neon sign with my logo and when I'm at the point to add some hangers I  find my self in difficulty.
basically, I'd expect they pointed towards the wall, so basically perpendicularly the spline and all of them pointing the same direction.

instead, I'm getting something different, they are pointing in different directions...is there any setting to tell them to point just one direction but keep following the spline?

Attached also the file if it can be helpful.

thanks in dvance,
Lorenzo

Hi two notes here:

Set Fixer Y rotation to -90. That is correct setting:



after that there are some random looking guys. They are due to the spline being in 3d

Select parts of spline that are not planar (red)

And set their Mtl id to 2.
Set "Linear 1S2" Genertors limit to Material = 1 only:




Hope this helps

I would have never guessed the "limit" part.
thank you very much.
