Array on a curved surface
« on: October 15, 2019, 03:58:01 PM »
Hi,

I've created a RC object that turns a simple rectangle into a brick street. I can't seem to figure out how to use this RC object on the same surface / spline with a slight curve in it. The Linear1S part works just fine but the Array2S not so much. Could you please point out what I'm doing wrong? I've looked at a lot of tutorials and other threads but I couldn't deduce the answer there.

Hi
Try to make the surface slightly larger than the clipping spline.

Hi Dragan,

Thanks for the tip! This does bring me closer but it messes the edges up a bit. Any clue on how to fix that?

(Also, apparently the surface has to be in the same postition as the spline to get the right curve)

Hi,

Raising the Clipping Area > Expand value should fix it.

Best regards,
