aligning objects to other objects?


How would you align seperate objects to an exact spot?

Say i wanted to create screws going all the way around a cylinder
how would i lay them out perfectly spaceed from each other?



have you tried the spacing tool?


I always like to use a cirkle shape and then animate the object on it using a path constraint. then use snapshot on it.

This could also be done using a spacing tool but I sometimes like to stick to this method


I would put the cylinder in origo of the scene with a centerd pivot. Then align one of the screws to the cylinder, move the pivot to origo and shift+rotate it a few degrees and set the copys to the amount needed. Hope this is clear.
