enter image description hereI made an array of cylinders following a helix (which is going round three cylinders). The cylinders are parented to a plane to avoid distortion, this is my result - how do I manage to fix the orientation of each cylinder to make it orthogonal (to path)? Thanks.

Twist method set to Z up on the helix curve:

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, but I don't get exactly what I want in my file by this method. The z- and the y-axis of the cylinders should be orthogonal to the tangent to the path (which is the x-axis). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ In the capture above the plane array is orthogonal to Y axis (orthogonal in edit mode). $\endgroup$
