Bend Deformer does not Bend

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm trying to bend a cilinder at 90 degrees using the bend deformer, but instead of bending it just stretches it in the direction of the bend. All the tutorials that I can find on bending pipes for example, are to do with splines using chamfer which I don't want to do. All the other tutorials use bend deformer, but as you can see it doesn't work for me. I attached two screenshots.

 

Thanks!

Geometry can only bend if the topology is there to support it. I would guess you have 0 height segments in the cylinder. Increase that to 16 or so.

You might also want to click 'Fit to Parent' in the deformer options...
