Attaching tube to toothpaste spline

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Im trying to attach a tube to a rotating sweep nurbed spline but it seems impossible to have the tube always aligned to the "toothpaste" in the right position.

Ive attached the project file. I hope someone can help me.

 

I tried to work it with Align to spline and Constraint tags but it didn't work. Maybe I missed something.

You probably need a Rail. This should be helpful.

If you just want the tube attached and spinning, parent constraint should do it - or does the tube travel down the spline ?

    OH Waw thats exactly what I needed! Thank you so much! I was putting the helix as parent instead of sweep!
