Snapping wall modules to splines not working
« on: September 06, 2022, 12:22:41 PM »
Hello,

I have 3 components that I have made into a wall module in rail clone. I am trying to snap it to a spline. On the original clipping area spline it shows correctly but once I replace that spline for the chosen one it does not show at all. How may I fix this? any help would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance. (I have tried to attach photos but I am new, sorry  ;D )

Kind regards,

David

Hello,

Hahaha it was that simple! My bad. Thank you for the fast reply.

I have attached the scene file and some images. I hope this helps.

I am sure it is a simple fix. I am just unsure as to what I need to do.  ;D

Thank you again for the help.

Kind regards,

David

*Update*

I have managed to get the facade to snap to the other rectangle. However, it is not correct. I am thinking it might have something to do with the axis.

I will keep exploring to see what happens in hope to achieve the desired finish.

Hello David,

Please see the attached file. It looks to me like enabling Auto-Align > X->XY solves this for you. THis option will automatically align the array to a closed spline.

I hope that helps,
