2 plank lengths + 2 plank widths as well... please help.
« on: February 23, 2017, 01:56:16 PM »
Hi guys,
 I saw the parquet floor tutorial, and learnt how to make a cladding [well, up-ended floor]  with 2 different plank lengths.
But I'm struggling with how to make the same thing with 2 plank WIDTHS as well.
I.e. 4 different planks. Full and half length wide one, full and half length thin one.
Please take a look at the attached screenshot.
I've searched on this forum but could not find a similar question or problem.
I'm on a tight deadline so would appreciate any help.
Thank you!

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us. You can achieve that style by using a Sequence operator set to Increment on Y. You can use this to create a repeating pattern of small and wide boards on the Y axis.



I've attached a sample file in case it helps out.

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

Many Thanks,

Paul

Paul you're like a medic at Formula 1 races, waiting in an AMG Merc with the engine running.
Super quick, and a life saver.
I took that file, added the 4th plank [thin half length] and gave it padding, random scale etc
Thank you!
