# Blending object along curve

I'm coming with the question about 'blending' this short path along curve. What I try to do is presented in picture no. 3.

Is there any clever way I could achieve result from picture 3?

siciarmat,

But for the rounded ends there would be other ways.

Probably I am overlooking something, but as per your screenshot Nr. 3 I don't see an obvious concept about the desired alignment.

On the other hand, you created what is shown in Nr. 3, didn't you? So, if you know how you did it you may know how to do it if you have to do it again.
