padding
« on: April 06, 2016, 06:48:52 PM »
Hi,
I'm trying to reproduce a drawing but I do not succeed completely. I have attached an image to explain my problem. The medium segment doesn"t want to move when I change his padding. Can you explain what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you !

Hi Pierre,

Padding does not affect evenly spaced segments, is it possible to use the Y Fixed Transform settings to achieved this style instead?

Many thanks,

Paul

Hello Paul,

I tried this parameter but it does not exactly reproduce the distribution
I understand the logic of the architect's drawing (see attachment). So, I do not think my method is good, I should probably not use the count parameter.
What do you think about it?

Hi Pierre,

Because the number of block is always the same for each section, I think the easiest way is to simply use compose operators to add the required number of blocks for each row.  You can then set the Generator's Count to 1 to scale them once along the array.




This would also allow you to scale them between evenly segments if you needed that feature. I've attached a sample demonstrating this technique.

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

Many thanks,

Paul

Thank you Paul,
Do you know why the 1/2 segments (higher rank) are not aligned with the full one (lower rank) ?
I was trying something with a sequence and an empty segment repeat 4 times. I'm not sure if it's better.

In that case I would say that it's because there should be 6 blocks in the top row. My fault, I only added 5. In this case I used Compose operators because you can scale them as one element and each row will remain in sync.

Many thanks,

Paul

Ok I understand, I will try to adapt this railclone to my curve windows.
Thank you very much,
