 03 March 2011 SilverLight New Member portfolio Ahmed Hesham Cairo, Egypt Hello You can make the letter u want , increase the division by useing a divide SOP then u can group the points of the letters , and copy a box on those points now the letter is boxes to make them animate , u use the ( group by range ) option in the group sop , and make the range from ( 0 ) to ( \$F) for example ..... hit play and see them building , if u dont like the order of the points u can use the sort sop before using the copy Note : those instruction will make your boxes on the surface of letters , if u want volume of letter , u can use a polygon and increase divisons box and the letter will be bounding for it , then group by bounding , and then copy another box to those points NOTE : please watch the lesson two in the user guide on sidefx website this lesson is exactly what you need share quote

Hi cdeorsay,

I am facing a issue.

You have used a box to determine the points inside group and animated it.

I did the same,but even though the points are outside the box ,the cubes are copied to the points inially.

I has attached the scene file...
