Applying a new Z to a list of mapped points


#1

 

Hi everyone, I’m trying to apply a new set of Z-coordinates to a list of points mapped on a rectangle, to pass a wave through it. The result is as expected - with the exception of the first point on the list - it stays where it is, regardless of the z-value change. Any thoughts on how to get this first point to act along are very appreciated.

 

Thanks!

With the formula and range of angles you are using I don’t see that point moving at all because the computed Z value of sin(0) will always be zero. Try shifting your range of angles, e.g. use 45…405…#n instead.

That sounds too logical :slight_smile: Thanks a bunch, Andreas. It worked beautifully.
