Curve Cross-sections : can you only have circular?

i’m messing about w/ some ductwork/tubing ideas and i wanted to run them as rectangular w/ rounded edges maybe, but i’m not seeing anything in the options for the Path for that? turning the resolution kinda might work but i’d prefer to define a cross-section and stroke the path w/ that : is it possible?


You can use another curve object as the Bevel Object of a path/curve

Alternatively you could use a series of mesh cross sections and use the Loft function of the ‘Loop Tools’ addon.
