Hi Guys,

I have an S shape polyline that I want to try and fit a series of cylinders equally spaced along, cant for the life of me think how to do it (easily), must be having a slow day.

Any thoughts? Using TC pro plat 18 or 17

Looks like a bit of guess work with the "On curve" 3D object tool. If anyone has a better way I would still like to hear it

Convert the polyline to a curve (Format>Convert to Curve) and then use Insert>Pattern>Pattern by Curve. (There is a Pattern on Polyline tool, but it seems not to work properly.)
