View Full Version : PLEASE, Needing help on Rail extrude.

07 July 2003, 11:12 PM
I am finishing my first model in LW,

and i am having problems while using rail extrude for convert this
spline (using a disc as object); some faces are wrong...
I tried to flip, but no success yet...

I am needing to make a string, for a guitar.

is there another way for give body to this spline, instead of this
method i am using???

thanx in advance.

Looks like the normals are all round the wrong way. Try flipping the entire object, or flip the initial disc before extruding.

Looks to me like you didn't turn on "align" -- there is the option in the rail extrude to have the poly stay aligned to the rail.

Was that turned on?

Also, check to see if you have any points in your spline that are occupying the same space. If you do, you can get results similar to this in a Rail Extrude.
