gap adjustment parameter in circular tiling?
« on: February 06, 2015, 12:05:26 PM »
hi guys,

apologies if this is a stupid question but is there a parameter to influence the gap between elements in a row. so that the gap is a constant value (without deforming the element which leads to very stretched stones the further the radius, or the other way around leads to overlap)?

any pointers would be appreciated!

cheers,
Chris

Hi Chris,

I think what you're after there is the Free mode which treats each row independently adding additional segments if necessary. To use it follow these steps

  • Create an A2S Array with using a spline to define the X Axis
  • Leave the Y Spline input empty and define the width using the Properties > Y Size parameter.
  • Change Properties > Y Mode from Aligned to Free.



You can read more about this in the documentation here.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have further questions.

Cheers,

Paul

well.. that was sort of shamefully simple... kind of a doh!-moment for me given the amount of squishy work I delivered in the past due to missing this one option  :o

Thanks Rokas, Paul for the quick response!
