Thread: wrap/unwrap a label on a cylinder/can

    wrap/unwrap a label on a cylinder/can

    So I'm trying to figure out how to fly a basic rectangle label in from say the left hand side of the screen and perfectly wrap it around a cylinder/can. I have tried the bend deformer but I can only get it to curl from one end to the other. Is there some sort of deformer that would make this work? I assume it's something fairly simple but I don't animate my stuff that much so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Could you show us a screen shot of how you're creating this label? If you wish to wrap a flat group of polygons around that cylinder you can use Heat Shrink. It's under Modify > Transform >Heat Shrink.
