Extrude Bezier circle?


(fredws) #1

How can I extrude a Bezier circle? What I have done is create a cross section of a railroad rail, from a Bezier circle, and I now want to extrude it, to create the rail, but I have not figured out how to do it yet.

TIA,
Fred

add a bezier curve and shape it to be the length of the track

select your curvecircle and in the edit window (F9)
enter the name of the curve in the BevOb: field

that should get you started.

NO!NO!NO!NO!NO!NO!NO!NO!NO!NO!
that doesn’t do what you want.
don’t try that.

wait for better advice.

In Edit buttons you can add extrusion to your bzier circle with the Ext1 value.
Ext2 adds bevel.

or

Convert your Bezier Circle to a mesh Alt-C and extrude.

or

Use a surface circle rather than a bezier circle. Surface circles can be extruded.

Alt-C did what I needed!
