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

Re: Transform operation along path

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.
