Surface as distribution object
« on: June 28, 2017, 03:25:43 PM »
Hi everyone
I found a post from three years ago (https://forum.itoosoft.com/index.php?topic=2131.msg7871#msg7871), where you stated some plans to use polys as distribution surface. Now the question rises again ;)
I have to distribute some sun shades on a facade, where I have the distribution surfaces from the modelling tool. I have square polys, but I don't fion an easy way to convert it to a useable spline. So the distribution on poly-center would be perfect. Or has anyone an idea?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The Forest Pack plug-in (in the Custom Edit > Reference Objects mode, choosing the Distribute Using: Face Centers) will suit better for this purpose. Hope that helps.

Best regards,
