I want to use the Pipe Variable component to produce a tapering pipe that follows a non-planar curve:
However, I’ve noticed that this component doesn’t produce a constant variation of the radius along the pipe’s length, but instead the radius variation seems to be higher near the midpoint of the curve, and smaller near the endpoints of the curve. To make this easier to notice, here you can see the Pipe Variable component with a straight line as its Curve input — an “S” shaped edge (yellow line) is obtained instead of a straight edge (red dotted line):
How can I control the radius variation in order to obtain a pipe with straight tapering? Or should I use another method instead of the Pipe Variable component? (Remember I can’t use the Cone component because I want the pipe to follow a non-planar curve). Here’s the GH definition:Pipe Variable.gh (12.2 KB)
Thanks for your attention!
