Hello,

I am working on a RaiClone for windows that includes an inner frame.  In order to do so, I'm creating two Array Generators: one for the outer frame and one for the inner frame.  However, I'm trying to offset the inner frame in all dimensions with the following:
  • Y Size: the total height of the window minus the thickness of the outer frame*2
  • Y Offset: the thickness of the outer frame
  • Padding Start: the thickness of the outer frame
  • Padding End: the thickness of the outer frame
Sadly, any time I try to assign values to all four of those parameters, 3DSMax crashes. There are also some strange results when entering small values for either Padding parameters (less than 3 inches), and it appears that the Left Side and Right Side are ignoring the Y Offset, or are actually adding it rather than subtracting from their total height.

Any guidance on getting this to work would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Test file attached, I'm running 3ds 2017.1 and RC2.7.4.

Hi,

Thanks for provided scene. These problems are caused by the X Rotation used for both Array 2S Generators - we'll check what can be done to avoid this issue. Generally, it's recommendable to rotate the RC object itself as in attached modified scene. Hope you'll find it useful.

Best regards,

Hi,

I can confirm, that's already fixed in the upcoming RC3. Meanwhile, as commented previously, rotating the RC object would be recommendable.

Best regards,
