In boths methods i can add an object on a curve (curve with multiple segments that are not connected to each other) in Blender this isn’t possible since it takes only one of the linked segments but not the ones that don’t connect to this first
Hi Jester but i use 3D Max too, and i have used both methods.
I tell you, I work in architecture and urban design:
I am working on urban designs of 4 sections each with sub-sections, for example, section 1 has 5 sub-sections and each sub-section is approximately 2km. That is why doing that by hand to separate segments and make the array and re-join them is a process of hours. In 3D Max it is a few seconds.
I know that Blender cannot do it that way, but what I really want is a way to get developers to keep this in mind, and that there is a possibility that they will include it in the future as an addon to activate or similar.
I really would like to switch to blender, but in architecture there are some tools missing (two that I have in mind and are very important).
My point was more that the tool understand using several objects in one tool. Most likely the tool attaches custom user data to the different curve objects that hold the settings for that tool. It is really the tool that understands it.
It sure would be great to have the array modifier understand the separate segments in one curve object in Blender.
But I think that one could write a tool that does something similar for a selection of objects.
