Bend an object along a spline

3 posts in this topic

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?
