Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using replicator shapes, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
In this tutorial we are going to take a look at some of the basic…replicator shapes in Element.…So, I am going to select Element from the Sphere composition, the Element layer.…I am going to go ahead and go to Group 1.…I just have a basic rounded, rectangle cube or basically a cube with round edges.…I want to change the replicator shape to Sphere which won't do anything because…we are only seeing one particle.…Before we could really see what's going on here, I need to go down to Particle…Look and reduce the size of this cube a lot.…
Now, with the smaller cube I can go back up to the Particle Replicator and…increase the Particle Count.…As we do we will see that it's making these cubes appear to be in the form of a sphere.…So, the replicator shape refers to the shape that the cubes are going to be in.…Now, one of the cool parameters I find myself using a lot in going back and forth…with Particle Look, Size with, is the scale of the shape.…Now, this is not referring to the scaling of the cubes which is what Particle…
