Transform operation along path

Does anybody know how to transform an operation along path (same operation along a path) as we do instance geometry in modelling. I had located the object - transform , but it can transform  only along axis

How many copies of your operation you need? 2,3,10? 100? You can transform your operation from CSYS to CSYS, many times.

Max 60 times , but  how do use CSYS. For that you need to use different MCS?

60 - not so much. See a short video (unpack from rar-archive). But - you must to locate CSYS for each point.

Select an operation and do RMB > Object > Transform, and set the type to "CSYS to CSYS" (formerly known as reposition). Then select the "From" and "To" coordinate systems using any of the CSYS options. I suggest creating a datum CSYS in advance at each position, and select those.

 

How you handle the MCS is up to your postprocessor. Try just making a few copies at different CSYS locations, and post it to see the output.
