Spreading a spread of primitives

Hi all,

I’m trying to find a way to combine several primitives into a custom shape, and then,

  • spread the custom shape
  • transform each instance individually, so that the original shape is maintained and the transformation affects the combined shape as a whole

I have attached my existing efforts, with screenshots, though I wonder if I am barking up the wrong tree altogether with this approach.

Many thanks

Thumbnail upload did not work, you can see that here:


there is just one connection missing to make that work. in the AnimGrid patch, connect the “Count” pin to the “Bin Size” pin if the “Transform” IOBox.

awesome… thanks tonfilm
