Problem with connecting the spline parameter node to the scale of the instance on the point node

"Good day, everyone.

I was hoping to seek your assistance with a question I have regarding the creation of a grape model using a node system. I have come across an issue where the use of a spline parameter node to apply a gradient effect on the branch of the grapes has resulted in a direct impact on the size of the grapes. Would anyone be able to kindly suggest any possible solutions to this matter?

Thank you very much for your time and help."

Haven’t looked at your file but guessing that you’re converting to points before instancing?

If that is the case then you’ll need to capture the spline parameter before converting to points (since points don’t have a spline parameter) and then use the captured value on your scale caluculation.

Good luck.

“Thank you for your response. I’ve been trying to use the CAPTURE node and repeatedly attempting, but it seems like I’m hardly successful. I don’t know where the problem is, maybe I connected to the wrong node again :smiling_face_with_tear:. I was wondering if you would be willing to take a look at my file. I would greatly appreciate it.”

Sorry, I may have misunderstood…

I see now that you are generating curve instances and then instancing on the end point of each curve… The instance scale will affect later Instance on Points scales, and the easiest way around it is just to realize your curve instances:

Hope that helps.
