Hi, I am trying to make a ball roll on a Moebius strip.
I first projected the surface and draw a spline curve on the surface. (on the middle strip)
Then I used the path mate to make the ball roll. So far, this is working but, the spline curve I drew on the middle strip is rather random.
I cannot place it in the middle exactly.
On this other hand, when I try to mate the ball (reference point in the center) with the middle surface, I cannot make the ball circle around since the Moebius strip is two segments.
(If I mate the ball with one segment I can only roll it over half circle and if I mate the ball with two segments, the ball is not moving)
Please help me on this
Thank you in advance
