I'm new to blender so please bear with me.

I have a group of vertices I want to fit to a curve. I tried using a simple deform and couldn't quite the results to look like what I wanted. Is there a way to fit the vertices to a bezier curve?

I have tinkered with the curve modifier but it seems like only the topmost point in the vertex group follows the curve and I'm not sure why.

You can see the vertex group highlighted below and the bezier curve is highlighted in the second picture.enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ @RobinBetts I'm not completely sure what the Bezier profile is but I made sure to align the vertices on the y axis (all points on the curve and in the vertex group share the same y value). $\endgroup$ – screvival Jun 11 at 20:19
  • $\begingroup$ You show a Bezier in illustration 2. Is that what you want swept along the 'roofline'? Do you want all the other ribs to have the same curve? $\endgroup$ – Robin Betts Jun 11 at 20:29
  • $\begingroup$ @DuarteFarrajotaRamos I see how this works with separated 3D mesh objects. "Afterwards add the curve objects one by one making sure you align their centers with the mesh object so they match perfectly." I think I am missing this part. Should I be moving the origin of the bezier curve to the origin of the 3D mesh? $\endgroup$ – screvival Jun 11 at 20:34
