A shape filled with shapes.

Postby GeoffKornfeld » Thu Nov 09, 2017 5:41 am

I feel like Multiscatter should be able to help me solve a (conceptually) simple problem, but I'm not having any luck:

I need to fill a shape with circles of varying sizes. They all need to be packed tightly together without intersecting, and they can't cross over the edge of the shape. Attached is a screensthot of the closest I've been able to get with this using Multiscatter. I've played with collision settings and other things, but so far this is the best I can do. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Update: It seems I've solved half of my problem. In the above screenshot there are around 200 or fewer objects being created. I had the max amount set to 1000, so I assumed that would be enough. I just found that the quantity gets MUCH better when I set the maximum to 100,000.

I still have the edge-crossing problem though. Not sure if the Border Behaviour parameters should be correcting that, but it isn't for me.

Ah, nevermind. I've got the Border controls working now. All is good.
