curve problem fit to curve method

trying to get this fit to curve working and difficult to get nice results
i did ctrl-A the 2 objects before making the modidiers!

curvebug1.blend (373 KB)

first problem is that if i set resol to 4 or 5 it gets totaly distorted
is this normal ?

also if i change number of points to get shape it does not follow it very well sometimes
and can this work in 3D or only 2D?

can i change curve to poly isntadn of bezier
can this also work with poly points or only bezier?

any help appreciated


In the Curve / Shape panel set the Twisting setting to Minimum to avoid some distortion.
