New to max - arraying question.
show user profile  Rhysshyk
The tutorial I am doing is building a brick wall. I open the array menu, put 24 as the 1D and 8 in my 2D section. When I scroll the incremental X value, the wall pans out correctly, but when I scroll the Incremental Row Z value, instead of it panning the entire array upwards into a wall, it pulls up on one end of the row and makes it into a stair case. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

That is definitely not the case here. My Z axis is the vertical modifier, either way this does not address. the Issue. I made two bricks then used the array feature to pull them out. When I use the Incremental X scroll, it pulls them out sideways perfectly, but the Incremental Z row modifier (instead of arraying the entire row upwards into a flat wall) only pulls the bricks by one end into a 192 brick dense staircase.

I just had a go at what you said and it did not work for me , so I used the Incremental move up in the top left corner of the array tool and set the X spinner to 1000 , that gave me ten blocks , i then selected those ten blocks and open the array tool again and this time set the Y spinner in the Incremental move part, playing a round with the Incremental row did not do anything for me ?? ..

if you just need a wall made from blocks you could try my scripts I posted up on script spot :)

Thank you very much for your offer, but I don't need a wall. I need the knowledge of how to build one : D
