Wish for pipe tool


#1

Any chance you could have a rectangular option. With adjustable side options of course. It would make a nice addition to the toolbox.

Thanks,

Hi Dennis -

As you may know the cheap way to get this now is to make a pipe and ChangeDegree to 1 in the ‘around’ direction.

You can check out this thread for a Python Script for Square and Rectangle pipes.

Did not know that! Still, it would be nice to have a rectangular option in the command itself.

Hi Dennis - it would need to be another tool - any non-circular shape would need to have some UI to orient the shape, and maybe other UI to place and orient more shapes… it gets a little more complicated than just Pipe. But yes, potentially a handy tool.

Oh, well. Probably better then to stick with sweep or loft then.
