    [Addon] Bevel Curve Tools

    Hello all!

    Bevel Curve Tools is addon for easily create, edit, and convert bevel object for curve. I mainly created this for my sculpting purpose, but it can be useful for anything else. You can see the demo in the video below.



    Github page: https://github.com/ucupumar/bevel-curve-tools

    If you have any suggestion, bug report, or anything else, you can reply on this thread or post it directly on github page.
    Have a nice day!

    I'm getting the following error in blender 2.74 when I click on the "to union mesh" button:
    union_mesh.jpg
    I thought it was a python incompatibility with blender 2.74, but checking the other demo video (the one showing hair on a female model), that's precisely the version being used. Has anyone else run into this error or know how to fix it?

    regards,
    Alvaro

    Hi ucupumar,

    great Addon!!!

    I miss one function.

    An option to adjust the size.
    So that the Bevelobject matches an duplicated Spline. (e.g. A Text-Spline)

    Okay, I think I messed up. I just realized operator bpy.ops.boolean are from sculpt tools addon. Just install it and you'll be fine. Furthermore, I have edit the the my addon to notify you if you haven't install sculpt tools addon.

    I'm sorry but can you describe more about 'matches an duplicated spline'. I don't seems to get what you mean.

    Okay, assuming I import a logo in SVG format.
    If I use your plugin on the Spline, I can not extrude the Spline.
    So I duplicate the Spline before.
    One Spline for the Bevel, the other for the extrude.
    The Bevel logo is bigger now than the extruded logo.

    As should now have a scaling function in the reduced the Bevel Spline percentage.

    I spend a Bevel width (x and y) of 0.25 and the Spline automatically reduced by this factor so that it remains matches with the second (Extruded)-Spline.

    I hope it's understandable.

    Sorry for late response. I think I understand what you meant. You can always use offset on curve properties like in screenshot below.

    There's a drawback though, now edit bevel position will never match the main curve. I already tried to solve this, but it still difficult for me. It's not big issue but still worth pointing at.

    Hi ucupumar,

    many thanks for your answer.

    Changing the offset was the first thing I've tried.
    But it doesn't match.
