MoGraph center clones to 2D text parts

Hi Guys I'm trying to align MoGraph clones to the very center of each circle of text made by using "Perfograma" font (kind of old style "punch card"). Normally I'd use count distribution and use transform to shoft the objects BUT it seems that some "holes" has different starting points so some object are then shifted incorrectly. Is there any way to tell MoGraph to place the clone to the center of each sub-objects?

Sorry the description may be a bit confusing, hopefully screenshot attached helps.

thanks for any advices

No problem ... attaching an image to a post doesn't always work.

Attached image:



Is this what you want ? If so ... extrude the font @ .05 or less.

EDIT: Using CC's option, you only need to use one of the 2 resultant caps

Hey Mildak - if you want to get the centre point of each circle, try lofting the connected circles spline, then convert to polys and run 'collapse', which turns each discrete poly into a single point. You can then use these points as a source to attach clones onto.
