I'd like to know if it's possible to duplicate an object along a curve so that it follows the curve but only rotate on one axis (Z axis), and not on the X or Y axes. First picture is the result I want, second picture is the result I get with an Array + Curve Modifier. Dupliframes doesn't give any good result either. Thanks in advance!

EDIT : solution found with a Dupliframes, then a Constraint > Limit Rotation for my object... Thanks everyone

    $\begingroup$ Thanks dr Sybren. Ok I've found a solution, I use Dupliframes, then I use a Constraint > Limit Rotation for my object, and I click on Limit X and Limit Y. Thanks everyone! $\endgroup$

Until 2.79: I use Dupliframes, then I use a Constraint > Limit Rotation for my object, and I click on Limit X and Limit Y.

Since 2.8: See Gorgious solution here.

  • $\begingroup$ sure, that's what I was planning to do, now the method has changed, plus there are the geometry nodes, I'll do it soon $\endgroup$
