Hi Peter- I’d use the method outlined in the video, I think, for efficiency, but for ArrayCrv, see the attached setup - it arrays as you are expecting, I think, with Roadlike > Top. The object to be arrayed is placed in the end of the path curve with its axis tangent to the path curve and the center on the end of the path.

You can try to remove a knot (RemoveKnot) in the curve. Repeat as necessary but remove one at the time.

Hi @peter1 - that may be the seam point on the curve- if so, I’m not sure what to do other than cut a little piece out of the curve there. If it is not the end point then the curve is probably a polycurve, and you can tune up the spacing using LinetypeDisplay > PatternBySegment=No
