Glad to hear it works after an update. This does use nested generators so it needs to be used with RC4 or above.

I'm not sure what you mean by "It works only below Z=0" - for me the RailClone object, the spline and surface can all be at any position on the Z Axis. The only limitation is that the spline cannot go below the surface anywhere. Would you mind elaborating?

The second issue I'm not sure I could fix. This is a workaround to do something that technically shouldn't be possible in this version, so we are a bit limited  :)

I would suggest it might be easier to modify the rest of the style to fit in with the Macro's limitation until we can update RC with a more robust solution.

Cheers!

Sorry about this below Z=0, You are right, I was moving the spline and surface UP, without the RC object itself.... so it seams that something strange was happening when the surface was above the RC object. By the way, because rokas mentioned that these are not limitations , so i want to make it clear that i wrote about what I noticed not as a criticism but for information for other users that might use it :) ofcourse i'm very thankful for Your help and quick solution !

The most important thing is that it works and RC is even more powerful now !  ;D

by thw way I like Your idea of stacking those support segments instead of scaling them, I will try to implement this also to my platform.

Thanks for sharing the final project. Really glad that RailClone could help you with this project. I think this technique will make an interesting tutorial, so thanks for bringing it to our attention.
