How to use

1. Assign Belt Rolls.

The Belt Renderer needs at least two Belt Rolls to be able to generate a https://unit040.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=PUD&title=Spline&linkCreation=true&fromPageId=281052387 .
Assign all Belt Rolls to the Belt Renderer, a Spline will automatically be generated if one can be calculated.

IMPORTANT: For Belt Rolls to be compatible with each other, they must all share the same Axis Direction and be in the same Plane

 

2. (Re)position Belt Rolls if necessary

The generated Spline moves along with the Belt Rolls. If you need to adjust the position of the Belt Rolls or their radii, the Spline automatically updates.
