Hello. I am quite new to Blender (on the order of a few weeks). I am interested in some advice on what people think the easiest way to bend a cylinder is.
Say I have a cylinder and I want to change its direction by 90 degrees. I am interested in knowing if there is a simple tool to do this that can do two things:
- Tell blender the angle you want to the object to change direction, in this case 90 degrees.
- The sharpness of the turn: ( how quickly to turn 90 degress), for example I might want to have the direction change in 1cm or a more gradual turn in 2 cm.
I think I could do this by extruding points, and having a bunch of mini-rotations, but I was curious if there is a better way.
