I am trying to wrap a "metal bar" partially around a rough surface like a statue. How do I do this?
- I created a "metal bar" by adding a cylinder object and scaled and positioned it to the right size
- I added subdivisions to the "metal bar" so it can bend
this is how far I got.
I think the shrinkwrap modifier is a good way of achieving this, but it does not work as I had imagined. I want the bar to stay in the x-axis plane, this can be achieved with mode 'project' in shrinkwrap and selecting the x-axis I believe but for some reason it does not project onto my statue, the bar just stays a straight bar in front of the statue. and it should stay a bar (for some reason shrinkwrap flattens the bar like it's clay or paper when I select a different mode in shrinkwrap)
I also want the bar to behave like a semi sturdy metal bar or wire, moldable but not stuck in every corner of a dent in the statue and lay on top of the surface.
I can't get it done, please help.
