Can I get a group from PolyCap?

Recommended Posts

a way to group it with less nodes and without splitting it after the polycap is by grouping by range:

so tube1 -> polycap_AddsMoreFaces -> Group_by_range:

in the group by range, make the range: nprims("../tube") to $N

it basically uses the heuristic that the primitive numbers of the polyCap always go after the input geometry.

Neat trick acey!

I added a file with 3 samples using attributes/wrangles:
1. Using acey's trick above.
2. Using an attribute to tag primitives faces before being capped. Then using group expression to isolate by the tag id number.
3. Using attribute wrangle, almost similar to acey's method. It reads the primitive count of the tube, then grouping only primitives that has newer primitive numbers.
