Is there a non-destructive way to make these leaves rotate upward gradually? I've used an array modifier with an object offset to rotate and scale them and a constant offset on the z axis to raise it up. I've tried to illustrate what I mean with the annotations.

1 Answer 1

  1. subdivide the cube
  2. add simple deform
  3. add an empty,the origin of the cube shows the point you want to rotate around, and turn the Z-axis of emtpy to the direction you want to rotate around.
  4. set the simple deform as I shown.

enter image description here


  1. right click inner angle,copy the data path enter image description here

  2. right click outer angle,add driver,pay special attention to the setting I circled. enter image description here

  3. then you can rotate the inner leaves and the outer leaves rotate as your formular shows. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ That almost works but they all rotate at the same angle when I need them to gradually rotate//bend more as the leaves get smaller. $\endgroup$
