Chain

Hi people... i wanna make a chain (like in necklace) with simple spheres in max.
is it possible to stick these sphere's to a smooth cornered line so i can just edit the line to make it bend and stuff?

or is there another way?... please let me know.

if i am not mistaken, its been a long while since i used max but, there should be a command like, animate along path, and once you apply that to the speres, they should become children to the necklace and become a whole necklace.

You shouldent have to, one way of doing it would be to create your spheres & either apply a path deform to each one (altering the 'position along path' for each one) or attach them all together & apply a path deform to the whole lot.

TBKoen, you should check the spacing between the individual spheres, because now they seem to be floating and not touching eachother.
