## Endpoint Selection node

In Blender Geometry Nodes, there are many different ways to constrain the selection of objects. One of them is the use of the Endpoint Selection node when placing instances at points on the curve.

Starting with Blender 4.0, a special group of nodes appeared in Blender Geometry Nodes, designed to cyclically execute a section of a node tree a specified number of times. This group of nodes is called “Repeat Zone”.

One of the usual operations in modeling is extruding a mesh from a plane of a certain profile along a given curve so that a three-dimensional shape is obtained. This could be done using Blender Geometry Nodes.

Doo-Sabin mesh subdivision based on a generalization of bi-quadratic uniform B-splines, as opposed to the more commonly used Catmull-Clark subdivision, which is based on generalized bi-cubic uniform B-splines. We can create a Doo-Sabin mesh subdivision using Blender Geometry Nodes with just two nodes.

Using the Collection Info node in Blender Geometry Nodes, we can access any object located in a specific collection. By accessing objects in a collection by index, we can easily change the current displayed object, simulating a sequential object scrolling.

Using the Edge Angle node, which allows us to determine the angle on a common edge of two neighboring polygons, we can easily create an analogue of the “shade autosmooth” function – automatically turning on a smooth shading depending on the polygons angle.

We can do a lot of interesting and useful things in Blender using Geometry Nodes. For example, finding the surface area of any object.

With Geometry Nodes in Blender, we can control the geometry of the mesh, focusing on its bending – the angle between adjacent polygons. This allows, for example, to separate the smooth “organic” geometry and sharp “hard surface” geometry.

Starting from Blender 3.6, the default display of face normals for Geometry Nodes in the Spreadsheet area has been removed. We can return the display of normals using the output attribute and the Normal node.
