Help on array understanding!
Hi, I have got this array to work but accidentally & I'm trying to understand why as the math doesnt seem to add up. Would appreciate any help. Creating a barrel of a wheel. I know this is the wheel excercise but i've already done the tire array & spoke array but the rim is not quite working out like those did for some reason.
Created 40 vertex circle and deleted all but 5 vertices at the top (to be the cross section of my barrel). I extruded the edge to create on section of the rim. 5 vertices is 1/8 of the total 40 vertices that i made the circle with so i expected to need to use 8 sections however it seems to be taking 10 @ a 36 degree rotation of my added empty to make it work. If i use 8 sections at 45 degree empty rotation that i expected to work I get the result below. -see image
