I want to make a ball go around in a spiraled circle

enter image description here

I've created the lines around the figure using the SimpleDeform modifier for both twist and bend. However, when I use the Follow Path object constraint, the sphere just travels straight down in the direction of the blue line in the screenshot, disregarding the bent / twisted path.

enter image description here

  1. Select the Sphere or object that you would like to follow path.
  2. Click ⌥ Alt + G to clear location (If that doesn't work, you can hit F3 and search Clear Location. If that doesn't work too, go to Object -> Clear -> Location).

A quick suggestion for the Follow Path Constraint that helped me is:

  1. Select the curve.
  2. Go to Object Settings -> Path Animation -> Frames and when you change the Frames value, it will change the length of the Follow Path Constraint.
