Applying Masks to Replicators
Masks can be applied to a replicator’s source layer (used as the replicator cell source to
create the repeating onscreen elements) or to the replicator itself.
The following images show masks applied to the source layer of a replicator.

object used as a pattern source for 3D replicator.
