    Placing adaptive components

    I"m trying to place 22 point adaptive components on a curved element. I'm having trouble grouping the 22 points, using either the sublist or the getittematindex node. I've tried doing the same setup with a simple rectangular face where i tried to place a 4 point adaptive component on a surface without using the lunchbox node since at the end I would need to group them anyhow. How do I get to group any amount of nodes in order to place an adaptive component on them?

    if I understand correctly, perhaps you can use list.chop w/ 4 lengths after flatten lists into single list w/ correct (AC placement) order, this will put 5 4-point ACs, you may have to use 2-point AC to add last one

      Actually this i what i'm trying to in Dynamo. I have an adaptive component family consisting of 22 points.

      At this moment i've placed that family manually in a massing family.

      And I've used the repeater to array the families.

      I'm trying to automate this process in Dynamo by grouping 22 points, but can't get it to work. Hopefully this explains what i'm trying to do.

          Is there a reason you cannot achieve this with a 4pt node?

            It needs to be a smooth curve and not segmented.

              Although you'll still see edges when views are set to show them, you can get perfetly smooth panels using 9 points. Not as few as 4, but way less than 22.

                I had a quick look at re-creating this issue this morning but ran into and Adaptive Point issue. Could you please provide a screenshot of your Adaptive Family showcasing how you have distributed your points?

                  Here is the screenshot adaptive 22.JPG

                  But more importantly, how did you grouped the points whether it's 4, 6 or 22 points? Did you use sublist node?

                    flatten lists into single list w/ correct (AC placement) order, and use List.Chop w/ 22 lengths.
                    using sublist seems more complex.
