Dear Radiance enthusiasts,

I have a potentially trivial question.

I’ve been experimenting with **xform** and I realized that I am still quite confused about how it works in combination with -a (array).

Below I have listed two geometry generators, that seem similar but do not produce the same geometry.

!genbox leaf ref 0.1 0.1 3.5 | xform -t -0.05 -0.05 0.5 -t -14.168 -5 0 -a 15 -t 2.024 0 0 -a 6 -t 0 2.5 0 -rz -110

!genbox leaf ref 0.1 0.1 3.5 | xform -t -0.05 -0.05 0.5 -t -14.168 -5 0 -a 15 -t 2.024 0 0 | xform -a 6 -t 0 2.5 0 | xform -rz -110

It seems that when xform is applied only once, the two arrays mix producing a different final result.

Instead, when xform is repeated, the transformation is applied to the previously defined geometry. In other words, all previous transformations are performed and then rotation along the z-axis occurs.

Is my understanding correct?

I appreciate your time,

Cheers,

Alex
