I wish to build a virtual rank of pipe organ pipes. Starting with a mesh pipe and with an "array" modifier I hope to be able to scale and line the pipes up easily within specific parameters.
- The pipes need to be made of separate but linked parts that can be scaled independently. The cone at the bottom of the pipe scales at a different rate than the main cylinder.
- The spacing between the pipes can be set and locked...ex. always .5units apart.
- Can select every other pipe in a rank remove it from the rank and have all pipes resume the input space between pipes.
- I would like to find a way to link the pipes with an audio file and a hyperlink(don't even know if this is possible---essentially I would like the meshes to be linked to a database like a 3D image map)
Is this possible? Is there a freelance site one recommends to find someone who can customize the array modifier, or is there a workflow to achieve this efficiently with the present software for thousands of different pipes!!
