Hi, I am trying to create a path for 3D printing that can be used for a lamp or candle holder. I would like the printer to move in the Z direction based on a set of points (15 in my example). As the nozzle approaches one of these points, I would like it to be repelled up or down, and then in the following lines, slowly revert to straight lines. I thought of using the “Tween” function of the Pufferfish addon, but I think this can be done in a simpler way. I’ve created a cylindrical loft using two circles, and I’ve tried dividing each curve of my contours into 100 points, but I’m having problems moving the points in the direction I want.
