Make objects follow a path

Make objects follow a path

Make objects follow a path

Is it possible to make a given object to adopt the shape of a path?
Like, a screw-driver to become curved like a letter C?

Just tell me what technique or tool to use for this, I should be able to figure out the details.

Thanks in advance,



RE: Make objects follow a path

Yeah, brushes can do this, if they're set up right. Look at some of the sample brush libraries. Some have this sort of behavior, others don't. The on-line help has the details.

RE: Make objects follow a path

Just drag your neeto shape into the swatch pallete. Have fun and dont use gradients.

BEHOLD! As Steve Jobs introduces us the latest in desk-lamp technology! http://www.apple.com

Thanks everyone that replied.
You were right about using the Brushes ;)
I loved the fact that once you actually use it, you can also edit the shape of the brush with the technical pen tools. Very useful.
Sorry I took this long to reply guys :( , I am copying with some severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, not fun at all :(

Have a good day all,
