I've been trying to create a spiked sphere using dupliverts, followed all the steps (spike facing Y axis, parent-child, checking rotation) and it still won't work. I tried different axes and still no luck. The spikes are not pointing towards the normals. Any help please.



On the Object Data tab, you need to go to Relations Extras (Just below Duplication) and under the Tracking Axes pick Axis: +Z and Up Axis: Z.
