Any RailClone2 users out there?
show user profile  adammichell
Hi

I'm creating this fabric weave for a speaker:

I know I can create this a few ways (I've already got it as a mesh but wanted to lighten the scene and add some flexibility). I've not really used Railclone too much and wanted to have a play with it - however running into a few problems.

What I would like to do:
Use the fabric segment to create the weave in the z direction
Then clone this result around a circle to create the whole speaker mesh.
Also add in a sequence so that it has the correct offsets.

Is it possible to do in one railclone object?
I want the flexibility to be able to adjust the fabric segment if changes are required.

Hope this makes sense.

Cheers

Adam

Displacement maps are a better option than this. If you have vray you can use waterlevel to create the holes as well.
