Hello, I am having an issue trying to make a tube follow a nurbs path. I think it can best be explained with a set of pictures:
This is the direction I hope for the tube to go, I make sure to hit control-a and apply both the rotation and scale of the tube and of the nurbs curve before setting it to follow the path… However, when I go to set the curve to follow the nurbs path, it flips like so:
I thought maybe the problem was the deformation axis being along the x axis (even though the tutorial I was following he did not have to alter the deformation axis at all for it to work properly) but when I change the deformation axis to Y i get this:
You can see its going the right way, but it flipped on its side, changing it to -Y has a similar effect of it going the correct direction, but with the tube flipped upside down.
This is seriously driving me crazy, I am wondering if I messed something up in my blender settings by hitting some hotkey I didn’t realize or something because everything I have searched for to fix this seems to have the problem fixed by making sure the rotation and scale are applied before setting it to follow the nurbs path with the curve modifier.
Thank you in advance if anyone is able to assist me with this!
