Incremental rotation
« on: July 19, 2021, 10:42:11 AM »
Is there a way to incrementally rotate every instance for let's say 2 degrees around each instance's axis?
I've tried the Christmas tree tutorial, but it doesn't work. Each instance is on a spline, I guess that's the difference.
Also, some instances on start and end are rotated in 90 degrees compared to others. Not sure why is that.

Thanks for the question.

This is  possible using the SubSplineCounter variable which returns a simple numeric count for each sub spline. By multiplying this with the rotation increment you should be able to get the result you're after. 

There's a actually a macro you can use called X Spline Variables that will give you access to this value without having to resort to expressions. Here's a screen shot showing an example of how it could be used.



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

Works prefect, had to update railclone to make it work! Thank you
