need help with cuban style gold chain
« on: January 08, 2022, 09:30:39 PM »
Hello
I'm using railclone to create a golden cuban chain and i run into some issues when i try to fold it around the neck
Please see screenshot screen1.jpg
I did try to rotate the vertice, currently set as bezier, but with no effect
When i set that vertice to bezier-corner then i can rotate the vertice, but the railclone breaks the chain. See screen2.jpg
Currently the railclone is set as shown in screen3.jpg (only added the distance)

Any idea how i can get this solved?

Hi
1. Can you share the scene file?
2. You can use RC Spline modifier > banking controls, introduced in the new RC5.

Hi Dragan

thanks for your reply
I looked at the link you gave me, and added a marker to the spline, but when i try to rotate that marker the rotate option is greyed out
The original file is close to 1GB, so i did cut everything from the scene, except the neck and the railclone parts (spline, railclone and chain link)

Can you please have a look at it and maybe you can point me to some info how i do the rotation - like shown with the rollercoaster, inside the link you sent me

Thanks
Uwe

Thank you for the file.
1. Add RC Spline modifier
2. Go to Banking tab >Clik create> Add Banking Markers on spline (additionally tweak Position/Angle)> Clik Create/ESC to exit Creation
3. Now you can select individual Banking markers and  tweak them with Move/Rotate Tool (You need to select Banking in RC Spline Modifier, see pic.)

additionally,
I would use Default distribution (Adaptive mode) with padding, bend off and slice off.
Also, You can increase Curve steps in General rollout.
