Uniform rotation across cloners spline

Recommended Posts

I’m trying to get these cloned panels to lay flat against a curved surface. The cloner is using a spline to distribute these. How do I get their rotation to be relative to the spline and not absolute?

can you post a scene file, hard to tell whats going on. another option might be to clone them in the flat and then using a spline wrap to bend them around, they would all stay flat in that case.

 

Scene file would certainly help tho.

Hi, I am sure there is a better way of doing this but i used two spline Effectors to adjust the rotation top and bottom.

could be you only need some transform tab adjustments, usually some rotation will get things lined up.

    Wow, thanks! I was using the transform to try to get the effect, the only difference in my project was that I did not have "Align Clone" checked. So awesome, appreciate you so much.
