Normals pointing to center

Recommended Posts


Noob question here.

I'm trying to get the point normals of a primitive (polygon) to point towards the center of the primitive. What I want to achieve are lines bent towards the center of two triangles - a large and a small one - via the copy to points SOP. I can get it to work for the large one, as the normals are pointing to a vector in the 0,0,0-position. But how to do it for a shape that doesn't have its center in the 0,0,0 position?

File attached.


As a bonus question I would like to know the easiest way of copying a smaller triangular shape to the corner of the parent shape (see visualization). If possible :)


All the best,
