Hi !

I just purchased this amazing tool and I wanted to start with simple things like roof, but I don't get how you do the dome.
When I used two splines (one circle and one half-circle) I don't get a dome at all, just a tube).

What am I doing wrong ?
Is it maybe possible to have to file where you did the first examples ? (dome and cone)

Have a nice day, :)
Cyril

Hi Cyril,

Please take a look at the attached file. The trick is to make sure the circle is in the X Spline input and the roof profile is in the Y Spline Input. The profile itself should be drawn on the spline object's local X/Y Axis - Z is ignored.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Many Thanks,

Paul
