Help with DupliFrames

Hi, when I used the DupliFrame function to copy each frame of double-helix, the first structur doesn’t show up, rather some arrows indicating tis place comes up. Here’s a picture:

Weird, I’ve never seen that. I’ve also never seen a Mesh set to Wire draw in Solid. Could you post the file?


Where can I upload the file? Can I e-mail it to you?
nevermind, I got it.

You are dupliframing the empty and not the tube.

Click on the Empty, deselect Dupliframes, click on the Tube and select Dupliframes :slight_smile:

Edit: You should check out the Array modifier, it’s much more convenient for symmetric structures.

awesome! thanks a lot!
