A Mystery
« on: April 21, 2012, 05:55:22 PM »
Hi, who likes solving mysteries?

I have been experimenting with the knot feature and then a friend got me interested in radial tiled clones. So, last night I experimented with both features and created a file I quite like. The problem is, it seems to misbehave when I try to do the final step. It is frustrating as I would like to make a video but I can't until I solve the mystery.

Screenshots and original file are below for anyone who would like to have a look. I imagine I am making a simple mistake and would be interested in knowing what I am doing wrong.

That one is very odd.  I found that if I changed a node in an area that deforms (just one node, and I tried a couple of different ones and they both worked) that I could use the Path operations without deforming.   :?:  I couldn't find anything that looked like it would be a problem.

Thanks for looking Heather. I went back to my file and deleted one node and it worked. I wonder why? Thank you for finding an easy fix. I would never have thought of deleting a node.

Normally I reduce nodes but as this was a trial run so I didn't bother. I am now curious to see if it happens again if I try the same steps but use different shapes.

This is a new problem to me, and I didn't know about deleting a node fixing a design; I'm sure I have some abandoned designs because I was having a problem similar to what you have described........

I can assure you it is new to me as well. I still find it strange that removing one node makes such a difference. It works so I won't question why  :D

Since posting the file, I re-created the design from the beginning, following the same steps and the problem did not happen on the second attempt.

A few examples of the type of designs that can be created using the same process.
