Basic Coord. Object


The Connect Object was used in conjunction with the MoGraph Cloner Object to create the image above. The Subdivision-Surface object can be used to smooth connections seamlessly.

The Connect Object connects the object points of any number of separate objects, within a defined tolerance, and can even weld them if desired.

The Connect Object can be converted to a polygon or Spline object using the Make Editable command or by pressing the C-key (however, the spline points from different spline segments cannot be merged).

Complex cloned objects can easily be connected seamlessly using MoGraph. Just make sure that the regions to be connected lie close together (see also Example).

How to Use

Group all objects to be connected into a single Child object (e.g., a Null Object; a Cloner Object was used in the example above) and make it a Child of the Connect Object. Alternatively you can drag the Null Object into the Object field.
