Fill pattern: Pattern instances self-intersect

vladimir_shapranovvladimir_shapranov Member Posts: 7
I'm trying to use the "fill pattern" script and getting a confusing error:"Pattern instances self-intersect. Try a larger spacing."

From the code it looks like the error comes from a "catch the real error and rethrow some assumption instead" block, which is kinda bad.
            applyPattern(context, id, patternDefinition, remainingTransform);
            throw regenError("Pattern instances self-intersect. Try a larger spacing.", ["distance"]);
The actual error visible in the log is "PATTERN_FACE_FAILED", which is also not very helpful though.

How to fix this?
