How to bend a plan at the center
show user profile  nine tails
Hi all,
How can I bend a plan at its center without changing the potion of the edge lines.
Thanks in advance.

go to the heirarchy panel, click 'affect pivot only' click 'center to object' then add a bend modifier. it will then bend at the objects center

Easiest way would probabky be to use Soft Selection in Edit Poly. Change the falloff shape to get what you need.

Thanks JonathanH
What should I do, if the side of box I want to bend has only one segment, btw I think I use word "bend" is wrong. It should be the word "push up" or "rise up" like Push/Pull in paint Deformation in Vertex. But it only works with the points. In my case I made a heart and I want to make the center of the heart, which has only 1 segment, rise up.
Thanks in advance

One segment? As in one poly?
In that case you have to add more polys to be able to deform it.

Try select the poly, and hit inset. This will inset a new poly in the middle, and you can rise this above the others. Smooth it all to get a good smooth result.
