Questions tagged [shrinkwrap]

The Shrinkwrap modifier allows an object to “shrink” to the surface of another object. It moves each vertex of the object being modified to the closest position on the surface of the given mesh (using one of the four methods available). The Shrinkwrap constraint is the “object counterpart” of the Shrinkwrap Modifier. Use this tag for questions relating to the application of the Shrinkwrap modifier or constraint.
