I made a video to show you how this does not work properly. So the alignment of the rings is not evenly distributed based on the flow of the curve. |
Just wanted to easily create a pipe with a profile as you might guess.
thank you for any help with this.
Flow Along Curve does also not distribute the items esp in the round corner, as you see it will inflate the items.
Array should work but it is difficult to see in your YouTube video what you’re actually doing.
I think you’re selecting a basepoint away from your torus…
Here’s a screenshot of an array with the basepoint in the center of the tours:
I still don’t see the benefit of uploading a videeo to youtube vs. uploading the video directly into a post???
@martinsiegrist Thank you. It works now

Have you read through this old thread on armored hoses:
We came across this a couple of times also in older posts, but those were primarily focused on getting the shape rendered.
Now we are back in using the hose a bit more, and needing different shapes, but keep running into the fact that is extremely heavy.
I uploaded the file so those who might have any ideas could take a look, both the two curves used to make it and the results I’ve gotten are in there.
I hope anyone has got a good idea how to get a sha…
Your pictures look like that’s more or less what you are trying to model.
