Bend Deformer - Set up

It’s really as simple as that.  All you have to do is put the Deformer underneath your object in the hierarchy.  One thing to keep in mind, if you are using just basic geometry, for example a cube, make sure you add some segments.  It can’t bend if there are no segments to bend.
