Path Deform Modifier Enquiry - can't seem to work


#1

Hey everyone,

Need some advice regarding path deform modifier!

Goal: I wanted to create stitches on my bag, where the spline is the bag strap edge, and the object is multiple stitches.

After adding ‘path deform’ modifier to object, select path & ‘move to path’, the resulting effect however is either

  • have the correct shape BUT floats above the spline, & cant seem to get down OR
  • just doesnt match the spline, its just a straight line

I’ve tried the steps from autodesk forum, to center both spline & object to pivot, reset xform and collapse all, but still does not work.

(Cam’t seem to add pics)

Hope to gain some enlightenment from this issue, thank you in advance!!

Warmly,
Heather
