Center and align object on primitive

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm looking for a way to to this with fewer nodes

Right now the right branch creates a point a the "center" ( approximation with primitive / scale=0) of the primitive blast1, and ensures that the resulting point has its normal set to the average normal of the primitive

Then I copytopoint the tube to this point and it's ready to be boolean subtracted to make the hole.

Is there a simpler setup that I could use, or some SOP that I could abuse in a way. MatchSize can almost do it but it would have to work in transformed space to match the primitive remaining in blast1,

Do this in a prim wrangle to create the point:

int newpt = addpoint(0, @P); //create point in the center
setpointattrib(0, "N", newpt, @N); //Prim normal to N
removeprim(0, @primnum, 1); //Remove the original geo
