Prevent object rotation by sloped Splines
« on: August 29, 2019, 02:52:28 PM »
Hi,

i model a brigde with sloped cables. I placed single splines for each cable, they are sloped in two directions.
The clevis at the end is rotated because of the spline direction.
Is it possible to prevent this rotation so the clevis fit correct to the bracket?

Thank you

Hi!

Hard to tell from picture alone. It should be possible to adjust with segments alignment options.

yes this is what i had alread done, but the angle is different by each spline - so it's not really working

Thanks for file, I have misunderstood the situation from the screenshot alone.

What I did is reorient Railclone object to Front Viewport. Then use Deform stepping to lock orientation, then adjusting it further:
