Hi,

Please find attached the "Power Cables Rough Terrain" sample scene made by my colleague Paul with a possible solution to avoid this kind of deformations. It’s based on a spline with the defined number of “knots” by the Normalize Spline Modifier (to adjust the number of poles as needed) and having the Conform Space Warp applied to adapt to the surface. Hope that helps.

Best regards,
