Questions about "Y Splinge Length" and "Y section Length"
« on: April 10, 2022, 11:50:48 AM »
I have a question why the values returned by "Y Splinge Length" and "Y section Length" are the same in this case, the Y line has been divided

Check if the vertices are set smooth an change them to corner... Smooth corners are not counting in subdivision.
Additionally add a null segment to corner input.

This is a 2s Generators, The point on the Y line is definitely a corner point, and the Y line does not have an option for corners, so I can't add null segment, I hope you can check the max file I sent 。thanks!

Sorry, I'm on the phone and did not pay attention. I'll check the file as soon as possible. Just make sure it is for max2020.

The file is in max2020 format.

You are right.
Something doesn't seem right. I checked with nesting and did not get any section variables.

I don`t know what your further Style will look but you can nest one L1S as a workaround.
Please let me know if that helps or if you need some other options.

I also used L1s nesting to solve my problem for the time being, but I think it should be a bug, I want to make sure if I overlooked something, since it can only be like this at the moment, then I know, I hope this can be fixed in the future mistake.

Hi,

Thanks for these questions. The Y Section length (and X Section Length) variables refer to divisions of the array between start/end/evenly/corner/markers rather than the parts of the actual spline. Of course, on the X Spline one of those divisions is caused by adding vertices to insert corner geometry, but the Y spline isn't divided by corner segments and that's why it's not working in this case.

 Instead of using Vertices on the Y Spline, I'd recommend using Markers instead which will give you the same sort of effect but with several other options too should you need them.

All the best,
Paul

Thank you very much for your reply, you are right, but I still hope that the same function of the X line can be implemented on the Y line, although it can be implemented with L1S nesting at present, if the Y line can achieve the same function, it will be easier to use, Of course I understand this may require more work.
