Place Block along Rail with CANT

Hi, I’m currently attempting to place rail sleepers/ties along a rail alignment with CANT applied using the AlignmentExtensions.GetCantInfoAtStation node. but and struggling with orientating the block to follow the cant rotation. Any ideas please?

Hi @aa047 ,

I’m not a rail expert, but could you get coordinate systems along the profile at the desired sleeper locations and then rotate them?

Thank you @mzjensen that works!,

I actually manged to get it to work about 5 mins before you posted via a different node.
I found Vector.Rotate worked a treat too.
