Circular Paving Patterns
« on: April 12, 2022, 10:19:01 AM »
Hi,

Was looking to make circular patterns in some paving and came across this - https://forum.itoosoft.com/railclone-pro-(*)/circular-paving/

Is there a way to have other circles automatically cut when they reach the first circle?

E.G - main circle paving in middle has a full circle, one slightly to top left of main circle is made but is only about 270 degrees of circle and stops where main circle is.

Hi,

Thanks for the second post, that's much clearer. In order to cut out that circle, you'd need to have two separate RailClone objects, as follows:

RC Object 1 - Creates the two top circles
RC Object 2 - Creates the bottom circle which uses a separate spline

You can then add the spline used in RC object 2 as a Clipping Spline in RC object 1 and change to mode to Exclude



I hope that helps

looks like its coming together! few tweaks to spline and pattern needed but works!
