# Array modifier with variable offset

I want to apply an Array Modifier using a function based on the counter number. For example, X Displace = Count**2, I tried to use modifiers["Array"].constant_offset_displace[0] = modifiers["Array"].count**2, but the result is the count value squared, like the print:

I was expecting for Instance 01 of the Array Modifier to result to $$x=1**2 (=1)$$, for Instance 02 to $$x=2**2 (=4)$$, for Instance 03 to $$x=3**2 (=9)$$, and so on... The graphic result is a curve, not a constant like what happens on the print.

How can I do this?

Thanks!

• I don't think you can do that with an array. What you can do, is create "real" copies of the object and set their coordinates to the values you want. Jan 23, 2019 at 21:28
• In python ** means exponent. So count**2 is count squared. For multiplication it is count*2. Is this what you want? Or am I understanding wrong? Jan 24, 2019 at 15:09
