I would like to make a grid of lines: how to transform lines into objects that I can plug into "Point instance" ?

I have inspected all the nodes, there is no node, in the current release of Blender, that outputs an object. How to complete this step ?

  • $\begingroup$ A work around could be to add a single vertex and inside that you could make your grid using geometry nodes. An use that inside the original geometry nodes Point Instance as an object, but depending on your main goal, that could be Useless $\endgroup$

In my (17/09/2021) verion of Blender 3.0, you can instance internally generated geometry by using the highlighted dropdown. If you convert the curve a to mesh after instancing, you can give the instances a bevel..

    $\begingroup$ You could create a gnode object and instance that result again and again. E.g. you create a leave. This would be your instance object for your tree. And this your instance object for your forest. And this your instance object of the world. All in one tree. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, but In one nodetree? Where the „partial“ result of the nodetree is the instance of the next part? $\endgroup$
