Shapes along paths


#1

Hello all. I’m brand new and I have a need to create patterns of objects along complex paths.

A good starting point would be evenly scaled spheres distributed evenly along a corkscrew path.

How would I achieve this?

Thanks in advance

I would start with going through all the tutorials, recreating some of these and doing some simple designs.

As for the corkscrew with diminishing circles, I would pay attention to the screw/spiral demos. With a 3D object Shapr has very powerful distortion capabilities that may work. For the circles, you can either draw a bunch with diminishing radii or use the Transform tool to scale copies and then move these to your curve. Finally Loft might be your friend.

Best,

Tommy
