I am modeling bridges and want to use a curve to shape them. However I only want the vertices to move along a single axis (like Z).


With the Curve Modifier, the panels don't hang straight downwards.


1 Answer 1

  • Create a constant-offset array of a single mesh edge, crossways to the bridge-curve..
  • Set the arrayed edge's duplication to Dupliverts
  • Parent the vertical elements to the array of edges?

enter image description here

This might not suit .. there are other options, particles on placeholder planes, parenting with constraints..
