Just a further idea...
« on: November 28, 2015, 01:02:35 PM »
Well of course there are other parametrical aproaches out there, and some of them differ significant from railclone, which in my opinion
is outstanding in usability and through its aproach to make reusable styles as well as its instancing engine for large objects.

but some things in other tools are nice too.. 

for example..  maybe in future releases not only somone could use the output of a 2s or 1s array as an input for another nested rc array, but he could get acces to the parameters of the cloned objects, thinking of the assigned modifier stack..

so an object could be build for example a window with its opening as a morphtarget..   this could be taken inside of Railclone and be wired to the lenght of the distribution path, so the amount of the morphing goes up while beeing copied along the path.

another idea...    use uvw coordinates of a surface for distribution of the objects..  to get more complex surfaces... 

ore get the color of a vertices map used in such a surface to drive the morph parameter of a copied object... 

i allready can feel it..    in version RC  4.x...    still the fast intuitive aproach  and on top   highly complex abilitys like in grashopper...    jeep...   ::) ;D
