Array Polar along a curve


#1

Hi all,

Is it possible to create an array of polar points on a selected curve?
I have used ArrayCrv but this creates equally spaced points on the curve divided by the length of the curve, and I have tried Array Polar but this creates points in a circle around the midpoint and not on the curve. Also, I’ve checked the ArrayCrvPLUS plugin, but don’t find the option.

example attached - I basically want to array points at the intersection of the radii to the curve outline (these are sections that vary in shape), but to retain the orientation of the radii as shown.

any tips would be much appreciated!

thanks, Laura

use Intersect or IntersectTwoSets for this- does that get you what you need?
