Hi,

The Deform - Vertical mode doesn't perform as expected, because your RC object has its local axis rotated as shown on attached screen-shot (specifically the rotation over X axis causes that problem). Setting the rotation to 0º (Z axis is orientated vertically) will fix it (generally it's recommendable to have RC objects aligned to World coordinates system to avoid similar problems). That'll have influence over all Segments / Generators in your style (the Rotation of involved Segments should be reset).

Best regards,

I succeeded has to give the adjustments.

Why?

Hi,

Instead of the Deform - Stepped mode, I would suggest you to use the Vertical one with defined Flat Bottom value (for example 10cm as on attached screen-shot should be fine). Attaching modified scene, hope you'll find it useful.

Best regadrs,

Hi,

Usual approaches to solve these problematic parts are to add a small fillet (Corner - Fillet Radius) or modify the Base Object (add a short horizontal part). Hope you'll find it useful.

Best regards,
