Y Spline Array 2S
« on: October 19, 2021, 06:29:00 PM »
Hello! In what projection do you want to create the Y-axis spline? The documentation says "It is not necessary to align the Y spline in 3D space. Just create it on any XY plane, RailClone gets the origin and extent of the spline automatically, using the local X/Y vertex positions. Z is ignored.".
I am creating a spline in front view and I have this.
If I convert Y Spline to X / Y everything works. But in the lesson, everything is defaulted

How is your RC object (Icon) oriented? Usually, it should be placed on X/Y plane.

Also, check those two parameters: Y Spline, X Rotation

Hi, Dragan!
In the lesson file, everything is by default and everything works. But as soon as I draw a new split in front view and plug it in, everything breaks (

Therefore, everything is already confused in my head. Perhaps it was created in a different version and there were spline manipulations at the vertex level ?!

Try to apply Reset XForm on the Y spline.

If I rotate along the X axis then the following happens

Can you share the scene file?
Thank you!

Pivot on your Spline has a different orientation.

Thanks! I also changed in the generator Y spline, to X / Y. And I did pivot manipulations. The question is, why does the lesson file work as it is?

the documentation also says - Defines what coordinates are used for the Y Spline: Y/Z or X/Y.
Note that X/Y was the mode for RailClone 2 objects. RailClone 3 objects uses Y/Z mode by default, which is more logical.

Sorry to bother you). But I am a person who, until I understand thoroughly, will not give himself rest!)

I do not just ask questions, I spend many hours reading and practical work in person to contact the forum. And my desire is to learn to get it right

Don't worry, you are on the right track.
I also often come to a solution with trial and error. With time you will at least know where to target those trials.  ;D
Tutorials are great but also keep track of the forum and all the topics because Itoo guys are giving great support in answering all specific questions.
