Hi

I downloaded some free models from the growfx official website.

I would like to learn some of the methods from these examples

I practice making a cactus model,but when I finished this“mesh builder” step,these thorns can not be attached to the surface,

In my understanding, The length of the“distributor”  of the growing thorn should be equal to the radius of the stem,but these values should have curve control,It is difficult to be precise

I understand the incorrect or there are other ways to control that?

Because the example is done perfectly!

I look forward to reply

Thanks in advance!

Hi Hawkington,

 

Just need to little change the Factor graph in the following affects:

 

needles_stem > st > Parameter:Path position >  needles_stem->Length

needles_stem > end > Parameter:Path position >  needles_stem->Length

 

Please see in the fixed scene: practice_1.max

 

Cheers

Great plant!,

 

I've discovered that the trunk displacement can be made thanks to this file- thanks!

 

 

I tried to make a spherical cactus, but copying the curve from stem radius is not working for me (I've also checked your file and values are different

How can I copy exact curve to make needles_stem right lenght

thanks!

 

best!

 

one more question..

Is it possible to use the similar method to create opuntia? I've searched for something like that but with no success

Just need to configure several parameters and graphs.
Please see my model: practice_sphere_1_max2015.max

It seems that 3dmentor has already created this plant, but need to ask him...

Thanks!
