y offset helix problems
« on: June 21, 2013, 11:15:31 AM »
I'm creating hand rail posts on helix. So path is spline helix, object is simple box set to evenly spacing, now when changing Y offset to anything than 0 posts disappear. I'm attaching the scene.

In RC2 we use a modified offseting spline algorithm, that generates better results that the standard Max one. But it is not working well in this case.

We will fix it. Meanwhile, please create the offseting splines manually using Editable Spline->Outline.

I apologize by the inconveniences.
