Array 2S1, building height problem.
« on: November 03, 2022, 11:00:07 AM »
Hello, this time I have such a problem, I have two building styles, when I choose the building style by hand everything is ok, but when I choose random styles on any other spline then the height of the building goes crazy and I can't fix it, I probably have something wrong with arithmetic. How to do it for it to be correct. In the attached file there are two styles, one is good where you choose the style yourself, while the other one is random and this is where the problem is.

Guys, any ideas? Should I give up. Everything adjusts nicely except the top segment.

Hi,

Apologies for the delay in replying. The issue is to do with the order in which nodes are evaluated. The Generator's parameters are often some of the first to be evaluated, and then the other nodes later. In this case, the Y-Size is being set before the segment is chosen by the Selector operators, causing the issue.

As a workaround, you could forget controlling the Y-Size (set it to something larger than your tallest building) and instead use a Sequence operator set to Increment on Y to build the pattern. Please see the attached file for an example.

I hope that helps,
Paul.

Thanks Paul, but I have one request, you could write it in max 2021 because I don't know what is happening, but when I run this file and change floors, everything is ok, but when I enter the generator and turn off and turn on transform TOP or anything in the sequence, the node breaks down. Could you check if it is the same with you?

Please try this version. It seems I had the wrong counter exported in the previous one.

Cheers,

Paul
