Problem bending around a corner
« on: December 04, 2012, 01:42:47 AM »


I'm sure it's just me, but why is the pipe here bending and flattening out just because my spline bent at 90 degrees? It's simple spline, just adding points and pushing them around. The geometry is one of the default library round duct objects, just scaled way down. I can't figure out how to get it to stay round.

Any tips?

Please try assigning the duct style again from the library, and use Geometry->Global scale to resize it.

If it doesn't work, send us a test scene for checking.

I'm still getting distorted shapes (flattened out).  I'll send a file.

Thanks for the help!

I seems the spline has a scaling component applied. Please, apply a Reset XForm to it, that should solve the problem.

That seems to have done the trick - thanks :) I didn't realize I had done that, or that it would be a problem in any case.
