Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Best way to render lines and circles with (or without) collision?

I am working on a project that needs to display and interact with basic geometry: Lines, and Circles.

I have been trying for weeks to determine how best to do this in UE4 and have yet to find a solution. The FMath functions have all the functionality I could ever need, but I need to display the geometry as if I was in a Matlab visualization.

Lines I tried using Cable Components as lines and while they look good, they do not have collision on them - which forced me to build a very clunky system to detect overlaps. I also tried using spline meshes as lines, but they seem to deform in unexpected ways.

Circles I was able to build perfect circles using splines, but when I applied spline meshes to those splines, they always deformed in less-than-perfect ways.

I need the lines and circles to be able to be scalable at runtime. Any advice would be appreciated.

Product Version: UE 4.18
