After i created a duplication along a curve with this method I want to mirror the whole thing. If I add a mirror modifier on the curve and the object it doesn't the object is not transformed along the curve.

  • $\begingroup$ Are you sure you can click the Apply button on the Mirror modifier for the Nurbspath object? AFAIK, it's not allowed for curves. $\endgroup$ – Leon Cheung Feb 22 '14 at 12:22
  • $\begingroup$ No and I don't even want to apply it. Why should I? $\endgroup$ – Codey Feb 22 '14 at 12:26
  • $\begingroup$ Well, because you said " If I apply a mirror modifier on the curve...". Please consider to refine your answer, make it easy to understand, thus we could be able to help you more. $\endgroup$ – Leon Cheung Feb 22 '14 at 15:27
  • $\begingroup$ ok sorry about that $\endgroup$ – Codey Feb 23 '14 at 11:55
  • $\begingroup$ why not use an array modifier instead of the duplication method? $\endgroup$ – Vader Feb 23 '14 at 14:19

Instead of using the duplicate method post din your questions you can use an array modifier and a curve modifier.

1. Add Curve

  • Add -> Curve -> Bezier

  • move it (in my case I moved it along the positive x-axis)

  • Place the origin at the start of the curve path

    • select curve -> edit mode -> Select start point -> Shift S Cursor to selected -> Object Mode -> Ctrl Alt Shift C -> Origin to 3d cursor

    enter image description here


  • Add a plane at the same location

  • Scale it down

    • edit mode -> S
  • Apply Location: Ctrl A Location

enter image description here


Select plane, add array modifier Fit Type: Fit Curve Relative Offset modify to move in the direction of the curve

Add Curve modifier to plane

Add mirror modifier
