Rotate pipe in ApplyCurvePiping


#1

Hi Rhino team
Can you add the option to rotate the tube when it is active faceted?

I want rotate the pipe because the face like in the picture is Always at 45 degrees.

Hi:
What specific problem are you trying to solve with your request?

ApplyCurvePipe builds a render mesh around the curve. If you add more segments, or turn of the Faceted object property, then it will look more like a round pipe, as the command was intended to visually simulate.

Hi John
I want make a pipe with polygon section( esagon , triangle ,square etc.) like the picture , setting faceted = yes

Hi Vittorio,

I’d use Grasshopper for this. Here’s a definition which you can assign multiple crvs to. I have a polygon component attached for changing the number of sides to the profile. Sweep1.gh(11.6 KB)

Hi Brian
Thank you for your response. I know how to use grasshopper, but this is a request to do the same in Rhino.
You can consider this my request?
Ciao Vittorio

I Agree it would not be a bad idea to have a Rotation slider ( or spinner)
for curve piping. For low poly models and the use of pipes as beams it is useful to set the rotation of the cross section polygon.
