Default Re: Replicator help

When you press 'go', AC3D will

1) duplicate or extrude the selection
2) move the new copy using the translation values (x, y, z distances)
3) rotate the new copy using the rotation degrees and rotation centre
4) scale the new copy by the scale value specified

this will all happen 'copies' times.

examples:

a) to make a line of 10 cubes one unit apart, make a box, select it, set the replicator copies to 9, set translation to 1,0,0 and press 'go'

b) to make a circle of 12 cubes, make a box and set rotation to 0, 30, 0 (30 is 360 degrees divided by 12), set rotate about to origin, (translation should be 0,0,0), press go.
