How did Gavin Shapiro label the different polygon models in the MAXON show 2020?

Hello all. I recently watched Gavin's breakdown of his work on the MAXON show 2020. On one section he has all the polygons labeled with colors and letters. It sort of looks like what you see in the UV editor "That's why I posted here :D" . My questions is. How did he do it? There appears to be a sweep and an extrude group used. I'm a little too fresh to understand it just yet. Appreciate the help!!

Interesting shape, problem is I don't see what is it as a whole. Can you share the video and a minutes from where he is starting to talk about it?

Yeah, he's made that out of actual geo - lines are splines in sweeps, and letters are Text splines in extrudes. By the look of the Object Manager he made each letter a child of (the same) cloner, cloned on to the polygon centre of each face, then made the cloner editable. It's conjecture but I'd guess he used the scale to edges function of a separate cloner to scale the sweeps to each edge.

How do you think he aligned the numbers to the plains without using a cloner ?

 

I don't think he did. As I said above, I think he used a cloner !

Ahh okay. Well then. How did he center those letters and numbers on the polygon surface? I was starting to use cloner's but thought. Those letters look very centered to be a cloner.

No I think he has made extrudes for each number / letter combo, and made them ALL children of the single cloner. So it just iterates through them. Again, it's all a bit speculation without having his scene file to inspect.
