Problem with the new Simple Deform in 2.48

does anyone know how to use the new deform modifier bend type in 2.48? I tried again and again without result.

As for the twist, stretch, taper types, I had no problems but, the bend type doesn’t seem to work correctly on my PC.

Thank you all


Apparently (haven’t tested it myself), it bends the object around the z axis. Try turning the object then reapply Simple Deform.

It also seems to curve around the object’s centre.

This is a five times subdivided cube scaled along the x-axis. Increasing the bend factor will close the loop.

Thank you organic. It works differently from what I expected, but now I understand how it works.
