problems with bend modifier
show user profile  joedrache
so i created a box, and bent it, just fine,the edges are as thick as the middle. but the detailed box gets warped when it bends at the same parameters, with the edges becoming deeper than the middle.

any ideas on this? ive even done other detailed boxes that bent just fine, im stumped. i tried limiting the effect but it didnt help.

At some point you have scaled the object at the object level. Never do that. Always scale at one of the sub-object levels.

Remove the bend, apply a resetxform (utilities panel) and collapse, reapply the bend.
