A bug in v1 rc-3 (Linux) Array Copy?
« on: November 07, 2019, 05:20:58 am »
Hi -
If I use just the x, y, and z inputs for Array Copy it works "just like the book says"; if I enter some value in the 4th position, to scale the copies, then the line of copies veer off in some unpredictable direction.
Best, Riley

After I wrote that I went to version 0.9 8P and I realized the behavior was the same, so it wasn't likely to be a bug (hangs head in shame) - so then I kept trying until I finally realized I need to ALIGN the object first, and, after that, there was no more problem.
Sorry, Riley

When I make a series copy or polar copy, it works as expected.
It is important that the scaling is 100%=1, 110%=1.1.

I create a circle with D=10mm.
I want to copy this circle in one row 5 times, with a distance of X=20mm between center of a circle to the center of the next circle and each copy should be 10% larger then this before. The input would be 20,0,0,1.1.
In this way you can only make copies with a distance between the center of the circle to the center of the next circle.
