copy to the center of polygons

Recommended Posts

hi,

how can i copy an object to the center of the templatepolygons instead of its points? ...i tried to use the creep sop to place simple nurbssurfaces (like in the tut on sidefx), and usings their centerpoints as a new template. i can't figure out how to get out only the centerpoints for the final copytemplate. i m shure there is an easier way to go...

thx!

Here is an example.

Also take a look at the expressions tutorials on the sidefx site, because he goes into a more complex example using similar technique. I think it's either video 3 or 4, but I could be mistaken.

use a convert SOP, set output type to 'circles'

divide sop, compute dual

it connects the centerpoints of the polygons, just what you need.

(the divide sop has some hidden nice surprises)

divide sop is a great one to know. The other I was going to suggest is facet SOP > unique pts followed by a primitive sop > scale (0,0,0) followed by a fuse sop.
