Hello everyone.
Is it possible to distribute for example collums on a spline, the way that they distance of them grows over time to a certain amount and after this goes back ? If so, how can i regulate it maybe linear growing or rather exponential ? differing solutions ?

Hi,
There are multiple possible approaches  a possible way would be to control the spacing by using an "empty" Segment which X Size is calculated by the Arithmetic Operator (http://docs.itoosoft.com/display/RAILCLONE/Operators#OperatorsArithmetic) (for example by a simplified Triangle wave (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangle_wave) which uses the modulo operation and absolute value  please feel free to use any expression wanted) placed for Multiple of 2 Segments on X Counter Conditional Operator (http://docs.itoosoft.com/display/RAILCLONE/Operators#OperatorsConditional) rule. Hope you'll find it useful.
Best regadrs,

Thank you, i allready found another thread with a comparable solution. But your example of the expressioncontroler shows us... we have to dive deeper into this..
thanks
