I'm working on an industrial conveyor belt and trying to animate it but can't figure out how to make it run.

It's a single object with an array to multiply it, deformed with a curve modifier.

I tried pretty much avery axis to move it, but it either stays still or move on the side.

You can parent the belt to another object (an empty for instance).

Then simply move the empty in the appropriate axis (along x in the blend file attached below).

You can also move the object itself along the same axis.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your answer, but my problem persists, the axis into which I want to move the object is locked. I tried applying the rotation and change de deformation axis but it doesn't seem to work better.. $\endgroup$ Jan 22, 2020 at 13:28
  • $\begingroup$ @ThibautTuabit, you should upload your blend file (editing your question) so that we can have a look at your issue. $\endgroup$

I found the problem, in my curve settings i ticked "Bounds Clamp" and that prevented me from moving my object in the correct axis. Thanks lemon !
