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.

hmmm... no i need to apply a particle system to create the spheres?

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.

thx peopo,
i actually ended up placing all the sphere's oh well... it doesn't have to be animated or anything.

here's what i'm working on

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