View Full Version : Special procedure to Layout Arrange/Distribute of nulls?

This could be very handy for generating nulls for Spline Control but I don't understand how to get it to work properly!

Got a Null.
Clone it 9 times.
Select "Null (10)" and move it down the Z.
Select my nulls from 1-10.
Arrange/Distribute/Along Z Axis

Get a strange order in way the nulls are spread along the Z. I was expecting Null 1 to be at 0, going incrementally through the numbers (2..3..4..5..) with Null 10 being the last in the chain. Instead, Null 9 is at 0, then goes 8..7.6.....1, with null 10 where I want it.

Is there a art to this that I'm missing? If not, is there a script that will rename or order my nulls in the SE based on Z distance?

What happens if you select null 1 and move it in Z to where you had previously selected 10?

Hi spherical. No idea how I managed to double post (something to do with auto-save before deciding I was in the wrong section(?)). Anyway, more details here:
