View Full Version : Curve to Poly, help?

10 October 2005, 07:59 PM
Ok, basically i want to try drawing out a shape in a Curve, be it a Line Set of Vertices, a Curve, a Bezier Curve, etc, simply a line of vertices.

Now obviously i want them to be made into a poly shape. I cant even find a way at the moment, but what would the best way be to make say a tube around ( or part of ) that curve?

If you wanted to for example make a bunch of snakes spelling out something, how would yuo do it? I want to use curves because they are easy to modify, but once i get it the way i want it, i dont know what to do with the vertices themselves.

Thanks to any help!

You can use the tube tool to plot your curves as poly shapes. Or you could create your splines and then loft a circle along them (use curve extrude, under duplicate)
