Pagoda Roof tiles

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


I am trying to make a pagoda but I lack of idea for the process making.

Imo, it is all about instanciating resampled curves onto certain points and then copy tiles to every points.

I come up with this idea :



But then I am not sure how I could instantiate curves into the red area, any idea ?

edit : Maybe there is something to do with mirrors, but then I need to find a way to trim the excess



edit 2 : Problem solved, you may find the hip attached for those who are interested :) image.thumb.png.c345e25e353f7ba3549b1e132a13d5dc.png

There are different way, just did a quick try for fun and without making thigns too complex or VEX math base, the Rail tool could do that.

The 2 rails should only have the same number of points.
