I have a mesh where each face is separated from each other. I'd like to add some motion to the faces by their vectors, but if I bring this object to geometry nodes I get only one instance imported (a whole object itself). Is there any way to use this object as a bunch of instances so I could affect faces separately from each other? enter image description here(the cube is just an example)

  • $\begingroup$ How did you import this object to GN? as single object or as collection? $\endgroup$ Dec 18, 2021 at 4:49
  • $\begingroup$ A single object. With collections the solution is simple. But I’m trying to achieve non-destructive pipeline so I need the mesh as one object here. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Ah, Ok, apologies. My answer had a collection as well. $\endgroup$ Dec 18, 2021 at 6:29

This setup shows basic transformation based on its face center.

  • $\begingroup$ Dang! The position node should have it been >0< I tried to achieve this with the mesh island and normal nodes all this time T_T Thanks! =) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Using this technique, would it be possible to have them only rotate from the bottom edge for example, or would you need to have them as separate instances? $\endgroup$
