Simple array with fixed count and distance
« on: November 07, 2017, 03:16:43 AM »
Hello friends,
I just started learning RC, but I can`t figure out, how to do simple array with fixed count of segments and distance.
I want to do stadium seating, where I have 25x seats at each row (seat is 450mm wide) with distance of 50mm between each, also each row have to start at first vertex of spline and finally I want to clip area for stairs, but dont want seats to be sliced, but removed if intersecting. Thanks in advance ;)

Hi,

Thanks for the question. Please see the attached file for a possible solution. I've made the following changes.

- Removed the clipping splines and used the base spline to place the stairs instead. This is done by adding additional vertices and setting the stairs segment to a material ID of 2. You can then stop chairs from appearing here by turning in Limits in the generator's settings
- Wired the chair to the default input and added a padding of 50mm. As far as I can see you can either have a fixed spacing value OR a fixed number of chairs. I don't see how you can have both as the splines are different lengths.

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

Many Thanks,

Paul
