I'm trying to bend a lattice to a curve, such as would be found in a high end architectural scene. I can't seem to figure out the bend to curve tool. I'm sure this must be doable. Can anyone take a look at the file for me and let me know if and how they were successful in getting the lattice to adopt the shape of the curve?

The test file should be attached.

Thanks everyone. I wish the user guide were a bit more descriptive for this tool. :(

Could you spell it out a bit more for me?
I see no "reference line" option. I do see Curve Bend which allows to pick a curve to bend to but the two options for "bend height axis" and "bend alignment" I cannot figure out.

You say "bend to one reference line". Is that an option in Shark perhaps that I don't have in Viacad Pro 9?

Thanks!

Same icon, perhaps different naming scheme.

So, how did you do it? One step at a time? I've spent way too long trying every permutation I can think of.

Thanks so much for helping me out with this defkon.

Just to confirm what I am trying and what I see.

Just need a step by step walk through on how you answered all of the prompts for that tool and what selections you made to make it happen. I knew it could work, just couldn't make sense of all the options.

I can't thank you enough for that video rokoko!

I hope that it helps others as well.
