Tony BaroneXPresso Question - Multiple points
by on Feb 25, 2015 at 2:17:42 pm

I’m trying to figure out an XPresso setup to adjust the length of an object.
In my attached file, I have an object named “Rail” with a points selection that I would like to somehow link to my Null so that when I move the Null it will adjust the length of the rail.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Thanks, thats a very interesting solution!
While waiting for a reply I found another way to do it. I placed a Squash & Stretch Deformer into the object and set the ends before the beveled edges so as to not deform the object as it grows.

In the process of this, I was hoping to find a way to get multiple points to link to a null for movement. I could see it being helpful in the future.
I know an XPresso setup to link a single point on a spline, or poly, to another object (null, etc). But not how to do a group of points.
