-{{ :​monthdial.png?​200|Month Dial}}By combining multiple freeform dials with circle shaders, you can make a dial that doesn'​t span 360 degrees. ​ You can even make the endpoints of these dials different widths or colors. ​ Look at the example picture to the right. ​ Here, we quickly made a month indicatorthat spans from 48 degrees to 312 degrees. ​ We made the endpoints a little wider, and colored them red.  This was done with a 15-count freeform dial, two 1-count freeform dials (rotated to -48 and 48 degrees), and black circle shader (to black out the top three marks).+{{ :​monthdial.png?​200|Month Dial}}By combining multiple freeform dials with circle shaders, you can make a dial that doesn'​t span 360 degrees. ​ You can even make the endpoints of these dials different widths or colors. ​ Look at the example picture to the right. ​ Here, we quickly made a month indicator that spans from 48 degrees to 312 degrees. ​ We made the endpoints a little wider, and colored them red.  This was done with a 15-count freeform dial, two 1-count freeform dials (rotated to -48 and 48 degrees), and black circle shader (to black out the top three marks).
  
 {{:​timedial.png?​200 |Time Dial}}Our second example also utilizes a combination of objects to create a unique time dial.  We made a minute dial using a 60-count freeform dial composed of circles, and an hour dial using a 4-count freeform dial with red rectangles, that result in marks showing only at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 positions. ​ Then, we simply filled in the numbers with a number dial with its "show every" field set to 3. {{:​timedial.png?​200 |Time Dial}}Our second example also utilizes a combination of objects to create a unique time dial.  We made a minute dial using a 60-count freeform dial composed of circles, and an hour dial using a 4-count freeform dial with red rectangles, that result in marks showing only at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 positions. ​ Then, we simply filled in the numbers with a number dial with its "show every" field set to 3.
  
 So, you can see that while this widget alone gives you a lot of control over your dials, it really shines when combining it with other objects, allowing the creation of unique dials that simply couldn'​t exist otherwise without the aid of an outside graphics editor. ​ The possibilities are truly limited only by your imagination! So, you can see that while this widget alone gives you a lot of control over your dials, it really shines when combining it with other objects, allowing the creation of unique dials that simply couldn'​t exist otherwise without the aid of an outside graphics editor. ​ The possibilities are truly limited only by your imagination!
