Bonjour Angelos,

If you want to have X times the object along a path, you can divide the path by (X-1) to have the points where to put the objects.
For some kinds of path (spline, Bézier) you have to convert them to polygon before divide.
If you want to have the objects each X meters or pixels or other, I don't know.

Cordialement.

But if the path is an arc the objects would be rotate. So …

For example different rectangles along an arc

Sorry Angelos, I was outside home and office.
Sometimes it is good!

I think you have to do this manually.
Divide the arc to have the number you want
Put rectangles on each points
Rotate them
