I give up… After spending more than half an hour on this, I couldn’t make it work, not even with all the creative ideas I had. Several things to note:
• The Follow Me Tool has a “defect”. When an arch (or circle or any other curved object) follows a curved path, its end twists. I find this especially frustrating because the only workaround is to manually build your curve like a spider spins its web.
Here’s an example. The second result is supposed to be the correct one.
That’s one reason I think your follow me ruins the ornament.
• It is not a question of scale because I’ve tried scaling it up 10x but still, no result.
• Also, turning it into a component, copying and scaling the copy didn’t help as well.
That’s basically it, I think. Follow Me is a good tool until it comes to round curves, in my opinion. This post is very interesting to me. I wonder if other members will be able to help.
