Bend an object along a spline

Recommended Posts

TracyE    0

I have the object shown (Fake Tool) animating along a spline (using Align To Spline expression/Position). I want the object to bend with the curve of the spline rather than stay stiff (I know I may need more subdivisions eventually). I can't quite figure out how to make this happen.

I've tried Spline Wrap but seems to wrap everything rather than just the object.

It is likely that your spline-wrap settings were just wrong, for that IS the way to do what you want. Pls post the scene file and we can help you further...

  • Thanks for the quick response. Apparently I had the hierarchy screwed up.

    I was trying to use the same spline for the Sweep and the bending tool. Once I duplicated the spline (MASTER SPLINE/Spline for Well) the spline wrap worked as expected.

    So the scene is now working, but is there a way to use the same spline for both objectives?
