    Chains?

    Hey,

    I'm trying to build a curved chain for a project of mine, and I was wondering if there's any way I can build it besides actually copying each and every link and then rotating it. I mean is there a way to merge follow me tool with copy/array? or any other way I can copy a chain link along a curved path?

    Thank you,

    Alexei.

    I think you want to get a hold of the copy path plugin. I assume you are trying to do something like this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsIi4...eature=related

    Whoa, that's awesome. Not only a great time saver, but what's with the physics movement thing? Man, I'm out of the loop with sketchup.
