This question already has an answer here:

extrude along this path

Hello I have to make an animation with this shape, but i cant find out any tutorial to explain me the method to achieve the result I'm looking for. I would like to extrude and animate a square shaped polygon that follows the yellow arrow path so that it builds up the entire shape in red.

Thank you very much for your time.

  • $\begingroup$ make individual curves, one for each letter and animate those sequentially. $\endgroup$ – cegaton Dec 7 '17 at 19:01
