Spline Wrap

Basic Coord. Object

Spline Wrap

A roll of paper (a Plane, highly subdivided along its length) is moved along a spline as is deformed accordingly.

Spline Wrap works like a deformation object and deforms objects using a spline. An object will move along a spline and be deformed accordingly.

If a spline with several segments is used, each segment will be assigned its own copy of the deformed object, functioning more-or-less like a Cloner.
