Arena Seats End segment scaling
« on: July 20, 2020, 11:53:52 PM »
I'm hitting an issue when putting seats in an arena and coming to a very short spline segment before the steps. As you can see, there is some odd scaling going on. I either get a mega wide seat or I get teeny little pizza slivers of seats. It is only in these conditions where there isn't enough room for a whole seat before the step. Everywhere else in the arena, the rail clone works perfectly.

Anyone have any tips? I've tried conditional but that still leaves a largely over scaled seat in certain points. Is it more of I just need to adjust the spline itself when this condition presents itself?

I've included the max 2020 file.

Hi, please take a look at the attached file which uses conditional operators and an expression to ensure that chairs disappear when the final section is below a certain size and stops scaling until the spline is at least wide enough for two seats. I hope it helps.



All the best,
