First sorry for my english, i'm trying to create a polar array of a cylinder around another cylinder, i've seen some tutorials about polar arrays using an empty plane axes object to do that, however in my case i cant obtain the result i want, the first image shows the original array of objects, i have a small cylinder on the sufface of the bigger cylinder, i've located an empty plane axes object in the same plane that the small cylinder then i define the array modifier, i want 3 small cylinders around the bigger cylinder, i'm getting 3 cylinders but not around the surface of the bigger cylinder, the first one is the source object, the 2nd is rotated 90º over Z axle, the 3th is rotated 90º respect to the 2nd and around Y axle, , i'm guessing that the problem is in the orientation of the axes of the empty plane axes object, can you help me to solve this??? Thanks in advance: LS
- Place the 3D cursor in the center
- Add your empty and the cylinder you want to clone
- Go to edit mode and scale and position your cylinder at the First position
- back to Object mode and create an array modifier on the small cylinder relative to the Empty and bump count up to 3
- Rotate the empty 90°
A lot like here.
