Hi Evgeniy.
We are trying to answer questions and suggest workaround solutions for our users even if maintenance plan is expired.

Thank You for reporting a bug. Unfortunately we have not fixed it yet.

Hi Evgeniy. Unfortunately we have not yet fixed this bug. We are working on multiple issues and preparing for next releases.

Thanks for your encouragement.

Hi Evgeniy,

I apologize for the problems, but of course there was not any intention of ignoring you, regardless if you maintenance plan is active or not.
As Rokas replied above, this issue was already registered in our to-do list for checking.

But please note that actually we have more than 200 pending issues for RailClone, including bugs, features and improvements.
The resolution time for each one may go from hours to days, depending of their complexity. Also, once a bug is fixed, it may take some time until a new build is ready to be released.

I just checked this specific issue, but unfortunately i cannot find any way to fix it.
The "Fillet" process creates new bezier-corners and remove the existing ones. More than a bug, this issue should be classified as an incompatibility between features.

I tried an alternative procedure, which i hope it works for you. In this way:

- Instead to define the "corners" using the type of vertex, i used a Conditional node with Material = 2.
- I set the Material ID to 2 for each spline segment BEFORE the vertex, where i want to insert a corner piece.

Aditionally i made these changes, to solve other issues:

- "Rotation X" is removed from the Generator, and applied to the Segments (i find more intuitive to control the rotation in this way).
- Segment->"Y Alignment" is changed from "Pivot" to "Automatic". This was necessary to center the corner pieces on the spline, and bend them correctly.

You can find attached the modified scene. I hope that helps.

I have another weird thing. RC corner doesn work on a spline, but works on a copied segments of the same spline, any idea whats wrong here?

For some reason the Fillet algorithm is generating a smaller curve in this vertex, that it should be.
It seems to be affected by the connection with the adjacent segments. Because that, the copy generates a different result.
I've attached a screenshot using our RC debug mode, so you can see what is happening internally.

RailClone uses a 3DS Max Fillet algorithm, but not the version included with the recent Max versions. We'll check the Fillet code and update it.

Meanwhile, i suggest to tweak the vertex manually, setting it to a Bezier-Corner and adjusting the in/out angles, as shown in the second image.
