I'm somewhat new to blender (I've been using it for a few months but am still not fully comfortable with it). I'm trying to take a cylinder and duplicate it around an origin in a circular shape. I'm trying to get it to look something like this:
I looked up some tutorials on this, and they said to put an empty at the center of the rotation, and add an array modifier to the cylinder with "Object Offset" set to the empty. I did that, and instead of rotating around, the cylinders are getting scaled (it looks exponential). I'm not sure why this is happening. It's happened before but I wrote it off as some bad modifiers I applied earlier. But this is simply a cylinder and an empty. A screenshot of my setup and results is below:
It's kind of hard to see, but the empty is at the origin of the grid, inside the second smallest cylinder. The really small, thin cylinder is the one to which the modifier has been applied. Thanks!
