hmm yea i got it and i fiddle about with the settings, still it simply deforms it, i cant figure out how to get it to do a perfect 360 bend.
i love maya really.
EDIT: ok i found some other stuff out, i can get it to bend but it always twists, never a straight forward bend, im not sure what the options do. envelope i dont know, high and low bound seem to create the curve but if any are set at 0 then it resets to a staight line again. hmmmm
NEVER FEAR!!! woop!, done it.
will keep you guys posted with future updates
