I was wondering if there is a way to do an elliptical pattern. I basically want to do an extruded cut on an elliptical object. Somewhat similar to an elliptical gear.
Have you investigated Curve Driven Patterns?? Insert > Pattern/Mirror > Curve Driven Pattern
You can pattern an extrude cut around an ellipse with this.
I used spline to make my ellipse and it only picks up on a quarter of the spline
Really? Did you check your instances and spacing? I had no problem following a entire spline.
If your curve is made up of several segments you can probably make a Composite Curve and select all 4 segments. Then the composite curve should work for the pattern (I think).
I have tried this as well and it still only picks up on the first quarter of my spline
Does this help at all?
