I am trying to propagate an array along a curve. The mesh that is being replicated as an array is an iconosphere. Attached is an image of the array and the curve. You can see that almost all the iconospheres are distended to various degrees. There are probably just 2 that are uniform in size. I am guessing the distortion is due to the intricate curve and number of vertices along the path. Is there anyway around this?

    $\begingroup$ array a simple plane object instead, and then use the sphere as Dupligroup on the plane $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Dec 1 '16 at 22:32

Figured it out! None of the answers I found on SE worked for me. Here are the links I looked at:

Here are the instructions that worked for me:

Dupliframes to the rescue!
