Multiple Bend Deformers?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


I'm trying to model a simple paperclip. I thought this would be the easiest thing in the world to model. I've placed a very tall, skinny cylinder in my scene, and then started bending it around with bend deformers. I started running into issues on the fourth bend deformer. When I go to apply the fourth bend and move it into place, it starts messing with my geometry on other parts of my paperclip. I attached screenshots of what's happening and I've also linked to the project file in the Dropbox link below.




I'm hoping someone can explain what's happening and how to finish the paperclip.


Thank you so much in advance for anyone's help.

Thanks for responding so quickly! I'm fairly new to C4d. How do I use the falloff options?


I didn't use a spline because I was initially trying to save time from having to manually draw the paperclip shape. Now I've realized that drawing the spline would've just been easier, however, I've gone down this rabbit hole of why I was unable to use multiple bend deformers.
