I wanna use the Mesh Deform midifier. I created an own cage mesh and set the modifier, but it seems not working. I don't know what the problem is.

There is a pic:PIC

Thanks a lot.

could you upload the .blend files on pasteall.org? –  BlenderShark Mar 8 at 18:11
    
Of course, here is the blend file: pasteall.org/blend/27383 –  dragostej Mar 8 at 19:05

For very rough cage, especially when using larger cage to control smaller target mesh, you need to set a higher value for Precision.

So, two ways to solve this:

  • Try to scale down the cage object;
  • Try to set a higher Precision value in the Mesh Deform modifier panel. (5 might be relatively appropriate for this particular case)

Note:

  • Normals on cage mesh are used to determine the inside/outside of the cage, so make sure they are pointing outside. Flip them if not.

  • The cage mesh has to be a closed mesh (manifold) to work well. When in Vertex or Edge selction mode, You can press ShiftCtrlAltM to find the non-manifold edges.

I tried the two way, but not work. :( –  dragostej Mar 8 at 19:06
    
Well, I tried, they both work. I wonder if you flip the normals of the cage? –  Leon Cheung Mar 8 at 19:22
    
So, I flipped the normals, and it worked. Thank You! –  dragostej Mar 8 at 19:51
