when bone x = 1.000. i want to change shape and save it to this state of bone(position x axis)

You could do it with some shapekeys and with a driver:

enter image description here

Create a cube, subdivide it, give it 2 shapekeys (one basis and a second one), keep the second one selected, go in Edit mode and round your cube with AltShiftS (make sure that the factor is at 1 in the Operator box):

enter image description here

Create an armature at the middle of the cube or wherever you want (parent the cube to the armature if necessary). Right click on the shapekey Value of the cube and choose Add Driver:

enter image description here

Then right click again and choose Edit Driver, choose the bone as Object, set the correct Type and Space (here, Local). You can also right click and Open Drivers Editor in order to change the ratio:

  • $\begingroup$ So awesome! Works even better than I thought. But i have a question at part about Shape Keys. At 0.000 and 1.000 its perfect, but how edit intermediate result?(0.500) $\endgroup$
