What is the Spline Tool ?

Post by GeP » 07 Nov 2021, 14:16

Hello,

I could make good use of a spline if it worked like in 3d softwares, but here i can't figure out how this tool works. I create a spline and end up with handle's point, and that's it. No way to manipulate or even see the spline, not speaking about extruding it to make a shape... I must miss something.

Any idea ?

Are you talking of the deformation tool? It is tricky indeed.
There are few tutorials in the Mesh Modeller subforum:

e.g. Using the Deformation tool from eyebo
or from the designers (based on an older version) How to use the new Deformation tool

No, i'm actually speaking about the Spline Tool, next to Create Face / Create Segment in the Tool Bar. But i've read in another forum that it is broken, or rather unfinished, since 3 years... Too bad, could be a great tool to create complex or smooth shapes.

Thanks anyway, TMarc.

By the way, i've asked in another topic, about the Deformation Tool this time : do you know how to set the rotation's step to something else than 10° ?

No, sorry.
The only place where one can modify a rotation step is in the bottom right corner of the screen. For the rotation tool you can set it even to decimal values, but I never tried to do that with the deformation tool.
