View Full Version : Extruding along a curve question

10 October 2003, 02:44 PM
I'm new to XSI so this may be a simple question...

I have imported two curves: one a boundary curve--say for the outline of a room; the second is a profile curve for a molding that will run around the boundary on the floor. When extruding the curve, it seems that the profile curve positions itself in the center along the boundary curve--regardless of whether or not I change the center to one of the vertices. In the "extrude along a curve" option dialogue, there is an option to change the center, but its not accurate.

The point is, when I'm modeling a floor molding, I want the bottom-corner to act as center so that it lays correctly on the boundary curve.

Unless what I'm trying to do is not possible, the only thing I can think of is that I'm not correctly moving the center.

I know that was pretty long-winded and redundant. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
