Limit Material ID
« on: February 24, 2022, 09:52:37 AM »
Hello,
I'm not able to limit a linear 1S from material ID. Maybe my process is wrong.
Thanks for your help.

Hi, Arnaud
Please, can you downgrade Max File to the 2020 version?

Let me just clarify the wanted behavior.
You need a Cage driven by the spline with a certain depth. Then you want to place the separation bars on the markers points and control open spaces by MatID 1 or 2.
Am I got it right so far? Not sure how you are attempting to place Gude Splines but I assume it will be an issue if splines are oriented differently. I see you are working in the free mode so I guess you are just generating the Cage and then you are transferring it to mesh.

As for your MatId problem, I would go with a simple Selector and YplineMatId.

Totally right.
I need the tube structure independtly from the cage mesh. I use FreeMode for placement of the objects.
I check your proposal.
Thanks a lot.

Dragan,
Checking your file.
It seems that it's working like a sort of YNextSplineID ?
Thanks again for your devoted brainwash.

Glad to help.
If you need to change the order of segments appearances you can simply change the inputs in the Selector node.
