Spiral Splines

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I’m trying to do 2 twisted splines  in C4D and I just don’t get it. Picture attached with the end result. I need two different splines not a cloned one because I need to use their ends separately. I tried to use 2 helix didn’t work well plus I have to bend them afterwards then I tried two splines with a cylinder, Spline wrap and Twist deformers but the result was really sloppy. In the picture is done with Autocad which is a...breeze, God I miss it. Real headache in C4D. Please help. Thank you.

It's only a headache in Cinema if you don't know how to do it !

 

Make 2 cylinders with a suitably high level of height segmentation next to each other, put them in a Null with a twist deformer. Now add a spline wrap under that, wrap it along any spline and you're done.
