In Geometric Node -> Point Instance, currently I can only randomly control the arrangement order through seed.

Can I arrange it in order(1、2、3、4、5、6)?

Thank you for your help:)

  • $\begingroup$ i don't think you can do this at the moment only with geometry nodes. Of course you can, but not with collection, but just manually with 9 different point instances OR...just increase seed that often until it matches...(sorry, couldn't resist) 😂 $\endgroup$

The solution for Blender 3+ is the following:

  • Use the node Collection Info and Instance on Points.

  • Activate the option Separate Children for Collection Info and the option Pick Instances for Instance on Points.

This way the index of the current point is used for the instantiation of the objects from your collection.

If you do this as in your example with a grid, where the points are numbered in rows, you would have to rotate the grid by $90°$ first.
