Find Centreline of 3D Mesh Tube

Hi All,

I had a scenario where I was given a 3D CAD tube. How do i find the centreline of the tube?

If this was a NURBS tube, you could deconstruct the polysurface and find the centers of the circular segments.

Are you sure the mesh output is the best you can get?

The mesh is the only input i was given I am afraid

How many tubes do you have?

Draw 3 point circles is the quickest way if all you have is this mesh.

i tried some thing u can check it out

Here a link to a similar question, but one solutions just works with open mesh not closed ones
