I have a piece of pipe, and i want it to grow piece by piece along a spline. I have it in a cloner, and have a spline effector. The problem is, the pieces wont bend around the curves. Can someone point me in the right direction please?
Thanks in advance
Simon

Use a spline wrap object instead of the spline effector.

Hmmmm, nearly. But I need the straight pieces of pipe to bend organicly round a curve. Can you suggest a way to set it up so?
Thanks again for your help...

Got it? Great! For when future people search the forums with a similar issue, would you mind sharing your solution?

Yes of course, it was so simple it was embarrassing.
Lets just say 100 segments bend better than 1!

I have a feeling this is one of those things that can get you no matter how experienced you are. "WHY WON'T THIS STUPID THING DO WHAT I WAN...oh..."
