Extrusion shouldn't be flat

Hi, all!

I want to extrude this hexagonal curve (near the 3D cursor) along another curve. I use the hexagon as a bevel object for the curve, yet the result is flat! How come ?

Thanks for your help,



First, you could use Curve Fill- Full and Bevel Depth, Resolution=1 to get hex form without even using hexagon object.
Second, is Rotation, Scale applied to the Hexagon?

try or with 3D curve instead of 2D

happy bl

As eppo said, if the hexagon has a rotation of anything but 0,0,0 and a scale of anything but 1,1,1, you probably won’t get the right results. ‘Ctrl + A > Rotation & Scale’ is what you need in that case. It might be a good idea to do all transformations (except the location of the object) in edit mode in the future, as this doesn’t affect the object’s loc/rot/scale.

Thanks to you both :slight_smile:
