Frame
« on: October 23, 2014, 11:44:03 AM »
Hello,
I tried to build a simple frame with only one primitive. I managed easily to do the bottom and the sides elements, but not the top. Is there a magic way to clone the bottom segment on the top ?
Thank you for your help.

Hi Pierre,

If you want to use 1d arrays for this style then to add the top segment I would create a second L1S generator, wire this to the same spline and using the same default input. You can then use the new generator's Properties > Z Offset value to position to top bar.

You will notice that the top section overlaps the sides, to avoid this add a new empty segment to the start and end inputs and enter half the width of the sides into the left and right padding:



I've attached this solution in a file as well as a version with some exported parameters to demonstrate how the height can be easily parameterized and adjusted from the modify panel.

I hope that helps,

Many thanks.
