Default Imperial Palace

This is my other model, its the imperial palace from Elder Scrolls Oblivion, ive modelled the wall and duplicated it the correct amount of times to make this long stretch of 73 individual towers.
In the game its 1 huge round wall, is there anyway to set the pivot point to the center and bend the entire model in a 360 degree loop to create this.





(scuse me mentioning this) Max has a "bend modifier" available to do this, has maya?

Looks good m8. Yes Maya has a bend deformer that can be found under the deformations tab.

First, click the object you're trying to bend, then click the deformer tool. In the channel box, you can change the values for bending and stuff.

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

EDIT EDIT:

NEVER FEAR!!! woop!, done it.

will keep you guys posted with future updates
