I cannot seem to get it to work, I see it in the plugin drop down menu, but when I select it it does nada, does it work like follow me tool? if yes then I cannot seem to figure it out.

install the latest version, and under Plugins you will see "FollowAndRotate". Select first a curve and a face.

phantastic plugin Wikii! thanks for sharing :ecstatic:

however, when I use a welded curve, I get very unexpected results. something doesn't seem to be working with welded paths. everything works fine if I use a bezier curve (no matter how complicated)



and I have a suggestion for a future update:
if you have a face with it's midpoint not at the starting point of the curve, the cuve will be moved to this centre point.
would it be possible to prevent this from happening, so that you can use a shape with an offset, that is twisted arround the path with a certain distance.
or even better, could you change the script to allow the use of several seperate faces?

Any chance of making this available as a .zip file? I have problems with files with .rar extensions.

Try to select one curve , one face and one construction point , then , using FAR. The construction point will be treated as the center of the face.

weird. it only works for me, if I have a curve as a path. it doesn't work with a straight line like in your example (not even the dialog box for rotation/scale input appears)...

but arround a curve it looks really cool! :D

hey wow awsome plugin, thanx for posting, is there any way to reverse the triangulation of the faces, i noticed that once smoothed the and as you rotate the form it gets very jaggy at the edges and you have to go in there with the flip edge tool to smooth it out... any way around this within the coding?
