change overall size of segments in preset (flooring)
« on: May 13, 2016, 11:26:48 AM »
Hey everyone,

I've got a (stupid?) question: I'd like to use a flooring preset from the library (Parquet Herringbone Double) and want to change the overall size of the segments (I'd like everything to be of the double size). When scaling the segments or adding different kind of scaling segments via transform panel the arrangement of the Herringbone structure gets lost.

Can anyone tell me how to solve this? I assume it's a small step for mankind but a big one for me ;)

Thank you in advance, Greetings  8)

Hi, one of the Transform nodes of this style uses a translation value which is specific for the segment's size. But it can be changed easily:

In the below image, i changed the Global Scale to 200% (that's easier than scaling the segment) and doubled the Translation from 7.2 cm (the default value), to 14.4 cm.



I hope that helps.
