shape Test{
// Line 1 ----------
dot[ y 6 h 150 sat 0.80 b 1.0000 ]
dot[ y 6 x 0.75 z -1 h 200 sat 1.60 b 1.0000 r -60 ]
dot[ y 6 x 1.5 z -2 h 250 sat 2.40 b 1.0000 r -120 ]
dot[ y 6 x 2.25 z -3 h 300 sat 3.20 b 1.0000 r -180 ]
// Line 2 ----------
loop 4[ x 0.75 z -1 h 50 sat 0.80 b 1.0000 ]{
dot[ y 4 h 150 sat 0.80 b 1.0000 ]
}

Won't "loop 4[ x 0.75 z -1 h 50 sat 0.80 b 1.0000 r -60 ]" do the trick?

No, the rotation cannot be done in the loop transform, it must be done in the loop body.

Code: Select all

  loop i=4 [x 0.75 sat 0.8 z -1 h 50]
    dot [y 6 b 1 h 150 sat 0.8 r (i * -60)]
