'glue' object to surface of extruding cube?

Recommended Posts

Bezier spline is not the best solution for simple animations, but when used, needed to adjust intermediate points (from Adaptive to Natural or better Uniform) and increase them to higher value. Higher value means more precise animation.

And as prevention for crazy rotations of cone object is needed to use spline rail. Simply copy source spline and slightly enlarge...

    Thanks for your input. And I see you have fixed the example file. And yes - rail good idea to stop the flipping at the ends.

     

    I'll give it a go, too. 🙂

  • I just thought I'd share the first small test animation video, as it was finished today.

     

    Learnt so much doing this. Thank-you for your help.  

     

    In the real world, this will loop continuously until the scene changes.
