I just found the ApplyCurvePiping command to turn wireframes into pipe networks. I like the look of this, but is there a way to get this new 3D geometry into a solid or mesh to further manipulate? I realize curve piping is a render effect, but once I adjust the properties to my liking, I’d like a working model out of it.
Ahah! I wish they would put useful related commands on the documentation page: https://docs.mcneel.com/rhino/5/help/en-us/commands/applycurvepiping.htm
In a couple of hours, take a look at the Rhino 6 Help: http://docs.mcneel.com.s3.amazonaws.com/rhino/6/help/en-us/index.htm#properties/curvepiping.htm
I keep adding more and more cross-references. Tell me when you see one that will help you. It’s not going to happen in Rhino 5, though. Just going forward.
You mean, not updating Help for R5?
ApplyCurvePiping is not a command in RH6 so I don’t see why it would be referenced. Legacy?
It’s surprising in that sense, though, that the search brings up the result that you link to.
Infers that I didn’t know that.
Sorry, No. There won’t be any future updates of the Rhino 5 Help. Development has pretty much stopped on Rhino 5. We don’t usually continue updating the Help when development stops on a version.
And yes, the ApplyCurvePiping, ApplyDisplacement, ApplyEdgeSoftening, and ApplyShutlining in Rhino 6 are object properties. You can still type the commands, but they don’t auto-complete.
