is there anyway to lay multiple objects across a surface or a spline.

i am trying to lay bolts across a surface and was wondering if there was an easier way then positioning them each individualy. it is ever so tedious .

You could use the array under multiply.

There are some clone plugins on that let you clone items on background poly's and points. I think that's what you need. Do a search for clone on flay and I'm sure you''l find it.

SP_CLONE_LE plugin, found at

clones whatever you need and orients it to the normals.
You can clone to points or to polys

And for whatever it's worth, I've got a tutorial on SP Clone LE here:

There is also a 48MB video tutorial available on the site. :)

a few others(these work for both mac and pc) :

point clone extra:

random cloner:
normal based, but as the name suggests, more random in nature. lots of functionality worth the price.
