scale along spline?
« on: April 12, 2013, 09:02:30 PM »
Maybe a dumb questoin, but I'm really pressed for time on this job :)

Is it possible to adjust the scaling of a segment along the length of a spline?  As an example, picture a duct/tube that gets narrower as you move along the spline. I tried scaling spline vertices in the off chance it would work.

Is there any way to do it in RC?

Thanks!

No, sorry. I'm afraid that RailClone doesn't include any feature that would be used for this purpose.

If the tube is not too complex, you might use a Loft.

yeah, the tube was just an example of hte idea, the shape is more complex than that :)

It would be an interesting feature..... ;)
