Constructs groups for paths between elements. Paths are minimized over the number of turns and the distance.
The geometry on which to find the paths.
A group specifying an ordered sequence of elements that will be used to construct one or more paths.
The type of elements to include in the constructed path.
The name of the group to store the constructed path in, when disabled, no groups will be created. If the Output Group is left blank, it will attempt to re-use the name of the Input Group.
These options allow modifying the path creation procedure.
The method of specifying the constructed path. When Path Type is Paths through Each Input Group Element in Order, the path will be constructed as a sequence of subpaths connecting contiguous elements in the Input Group. When Path Type is Loops or Rings Starting from Elements in Input Group, the path will construct a number of subpaths using only a starting element to specify the path. When Path Type is Paths between Start/End Pairs in Input Group, the Input Group will be paired, with each pair specifying the start and end element of a new path.
The type of loop to construct. Stop at End will only create the shortest path between elements. Extend to Edge will extend the path as far as possible without any sharp turns. Close Path will attempt to find a secondary path back to the beginning without intersecting with the original path.
Avoid Self Intersection
When selected, sub-paths will avoid crossing elements and paths that have already been constructed. Sub-paths are given priority by the order that they are specified in the Input Group. If paths are unable to be created, a warning will be shown.
Edge Path Style
When finding paths between edges, one can use the Edge Path Style to allow both rings and loops, allow only loops, or allow only rings.
These options allow supplying extra constrains that the path must follow.
Used to restrict a path to a region connected by a UV Attribute.
A group of elements to avoid when finding paths.
Collision Group Type
The type of element in the Collision Group. The Collision Group Type does not need to be the same as the Group Type.
Contain within Collision Group
Constrains constructed paths within the supplied Collision Group.
Allow Paths along Collision Group Boundary
When enabled, will require both half edges on an edge to be free of collisions while constructing edge loops, and will require entire polygons to be free of collisions while constructing rings and primitive loops.
