Extend X/Y Size to Area - geometry deformation
« on: March 30, 2020, 05:18:35 PM »
Hi Paul,

I'm opening a new topic as my next question is not connected with the previous and is a bit tricky.

In the image attached, you can see an example, in which I'm using Array 2S Generator with Extend X/Y Size to Area. Auto align - to spline. (so i can rotate it freely)
The Segment ("1") is passing trough "Scale to Array" macros.


1. Base object (Editable Poly)
2. RailClone object
3. Desired effect (Editable Poly/FFD)

Is there any approach that will allow me to deform (Bend) the geometry in the RC object ("2") with the tangents of the Bezier-Corner while using the "Scale to Array" ?
I want to achieve a result similar  to the FFD ("3"), while keeping the rotation linked to the spline (Auto align - to spline).



Kind regards,
Kiril Alexandrov, RedVertex Team

Hi.
That is very unusual case. I doubt that is possible.

Hi Rikas,

Thank you for the response.
I'm aware that no ordinary approach could achieve this result. My hope was that there is some expression workaround.

This is not an urgent topic so if you come up with some idea any time soon, i'll be glad if you could share it.

Best regards,
