I’m trying out 3.0 alpha. We don’t seem to have a geometry nodes category in support, so I’m asking this here.
When instancing a “string to curves” with “instance on points”, input nodes such as “index” and “position” appear to always be evaluated as 0.
If these are used as input into the rotation or scale fields, the value is evaluated properly:
I don’t know if this is a bug, just an overlooked feature, or if I’m doing something wrong. But if I’m doing it right, and this is the intended behavior, I don’t think “string to curves” is living up to its potential.
Here’s a quick example of what I’m trying to achieve. Here, each of the numbers is its own object. This works, but requires hundreds of objects (most off-screen in this render) when this should be easily accomplished with just one.
Can anyone provide guidance on how to achieve this using a single object for all the text in the column of numbers?
