converting mesh edge to a curve

(jasonhan) #1

does anyone know a blender 2.62 function to take the edge or edge loop of a mesh and convert it to a curve/path so it can be used for array and other things?

Alt+C converts a mesh to a curve

Thanks, but I think that only works in “object” mode.
I’m trying to select an edge loop inside "edit"mode and convert those edges into a curve/path.
Any ideas?

Select edge, Shift+D to duplicate, P to separate to new object, Alt+C to convert to curve.

Perfect. Thank you.

I selected a series of vertices, duplicated, separated, and alt-c’ed. This is what I get… I select the target and nothing happens. Is there a “go” button?
