I'm trying to wrap this strap structure around my model's leg:

![enter image description here

It already has a thickness, so simple Shrinkwrap doesn't work. I've found some tutorials using a lattice with Shrinkwrap, then Surface Deform by the Shrinkwrapped lattice:

enter image description here (from How to add curve modifier to text?)

But the object is flat. I don't know how to build the lattice for my curved strap, or whether it's even the right approach. What's the best way to approach this?

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not following. do you want your strap object to exactly match the limb, so the strap's inside surfaces just touch the limb's surfaces? $\endgroup$ Sep 20 at 0:24

You could duplicate the inner faces of your strap, separate as a new object (Strap2):

enter image description here

Give your strap a Surface Deform with Strap2 as Target. Give Strap2 a Shrinkwrap modifier with your leg as Target, tweak the Offset value a bit:
