I'm trying to create a loop-looking structure out of a cloner and a twist deform. The cloner is repeating and the shape looks like I want it to. However, the cloned objects are not connected together. I'm looking for a way to connect the edges of the cloned object so that it looks like a roll of film.
Here's a still to show what I'm talking about. In the close-up, you can see the edges are not linked.
You might have better luck cloning the strips in a straight line and then creating a spline path for them to follow. You could then apply a spline wrap deformer to the cloner to place the clones along the spline. The advantage there is that the deformer will actually bend the clones (assuming there's enough geometry) so they should hopefully stick closer together.
