Sweep: transform cross sections by attribute

Recommended Posts

Hi

Could it be possible to take some transformations on cross section from transform node and have it corresponds with attribute on sweep backbone ?

So the Scale value would be same as attrib on the backbone.

I know I can have it with skin but sweep needed to go first.

Thanks for any thoughts on that.

Turn off using Transform Using Attributes. Sweep will then transform the cross section using pscale, scale, N etc

Sorry
Wasn't clear.

I think it's a bit tricky but I'm modifying just group of points for the cross section.
So it's kinda having multiple sections variants and they should be copied to the path by the sweep node in certain order that corresponds to the attribute on it.

So point on the backbone with attribute value 0.1 should fetch a cross-section that has that group of points transformation with the same value 0.1 and so on...

I just doubt if that at all out of the sweep node capacity.

Maybe use Copy To Points to copy different crosssections to your backbone first and use Skin to sweep those afterwards.
