:I have 10 buildings (each is an object) side by side.
I know how to bend an object in layout but how to bend 10 objects ? :stumped:

Just select them all and use the bend tool, they'll behave like one object! I've just tried it with a row of boxes and it worked beautifully! Of course complex models might be a bit trickier! :D

Apply the bend modifier to each object and set it to use the same cotrollers. Then move the controllers.

OK, I wasn't precise enough.
I would like to bend all objects at once like if it is one object.
For exemple in electric image, child objects can deform according to their parent.
I would like that the group of building folow an arc, but I don't want to make it in modeller : I'll have some correction to do after and I have roof tile : modeler don't like when I clone to much of them...
