Wrap subtool around another?

Hi, is it possible to fit a mesh to the contour of another? Say I've got an armor plate that I build flat, can I get it to wrap around a character's thigh?

I'd probably start by using a bend deformer or starting my model from an extraction. Now that I think about it, bringing an extraction into my 3d app to start is probably the best approach...

Match Maker, the perfect brush to deform your mesh to conform to other 3D models.
