    Sure, you can do it without gradients.

    The nodes in the bottom are instead of gradients. Scalar-node is size of tiles.
    Transform-nodes allows rotation of big box...

    alright-- you need to be thinking about what you want me to carve. I can carve that little cat's head-- your avatar?
    think! You've earned a master carve

    I routed the scalar to a multiply (x1) node and to the scale of the grid-- I call it "gridlock". The tile of the grid stays unified with the tile of the boxes-- but the boxes don't seem to scale the same way (see picture)

    Ah, yes. Grid in Lightwave is centered around the origin. If you move grid by half its size, then it should fit.
    Also, as it is now, size must match the size of the small box, or you get funny results. There are some posibilities:

    Use a node to match the size of small box.
    (scalar node is fine for a perfect cube, vector node like this if you need different height/width/depth)

    You could start with the 1m cube, and use scaling from Item Info node. You then resize small box in Layout...

    Or, you could leave the small box alone, and add nodes to control its apparent size. I get some funny results on that one, and it's too hot here for more brain activity...

    Hi all, any chance to see this thread revamped for 2018 ? I would be really interested in see this node working.

    I'm curious as to what the tiki looked like.
