Rail Clone Bending and Corner issue
« on: October 01, 2015, 09:15:29 PM »
I'm having a problem keeping my building from bending and I'm also trying to keep the corners to Align rather then disconnect.. See attached.. Thanks in advanced!

Hi,

In case you are using the Tile mode, setting the Bevel mode for X Corner to Reset / Extend / Symmetric will fix that. For the Adaptive (or Count) mode these setting aren't available and I would suggest you to create a new empty Segment and wire it to the Inner Corner slot of your Array 2S Generator. Attaching screenshots.

Hope that helps.

Best regards,

Hi,

Please see the attached for a possible solution. I've assumed that you don't want the walls to be sliced so in order to ensure that only whole segments are used I've changed to mode to Adaptive. This will subtly scale the segments to ensure they fit exactly within a spline segment. Unfortunately this also disables the ability to bevel corners so I've added corner segments using a second generator. This also has the advantage of preventing windows from going right into the corners.



This is my  preferred set-up for buildings of this type. I hope it helps and please let me know if you have further questions.

Many thanks!

Paul
