Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing axis splines, part of Up and Running with Plant Factory.
- For finer control over the axis spline,…we can use a dedicated Axis Spline Editor.…That'll give us some abilities that we don't have…with the Touch-up tool.…We can select the trunk and go to its parameters,…and we will see there's an axis item here…with an icon next to it.…Currently, the icon is enabled, it's lit up…because we have made some change…to the axis in the past.…When we initially drew that trunk segment,…we created an axis spline, and that stored here.…
With the All primitive instances chosen…in the pull-down list, we can adjust the shape of that axis,…and it's going to affect the trunk.…The trunk currently only has one variation,…so let's click on that button,…and the Axis Spline Editor opens,…and we can resize it, make it bigger or smaller.…We can zoom in with the wheel,…and navigate with the middle mouse button…to tumble or orbit around.…We see the 3D axis spline here,…and we also see projected 2D splines…for the front and side.…
We can either edit in 3D or in 2D.…We won't see the change…until we click the Apply button down here.…
