How does it works with 90degree angle? It seems very usable for a sweep profiles in archviz.

#4

It should works fine, the calc_shell_factor () function return a multiplier to correct size according the angle.

Not working for me
It says
“ZeroDivisionError: flot division by zero”

#6

I get this error when I miss to select the profile face… First select face loop and at last select the single face polygon you want to use like profile (it has to be recognized like active in the selection history)

(swathi) #7

This message after I selected the loop and then the profile face to activate it:frowning_face:

#8

at moment to get uniform offset use vertex normal ( I ll try to improve it when I’ll switch to blender 2.8 )

#9

very strange… the selection it’s something like that?

I think I find my error. Let me try it again.
Thank you for this fantastic add on and early waiting for the 2.8 version

A wish list for new version.

  1. Interactive workflow
  2. Using curve profile instead of face.
    As i told before just a wishlist.:blush:
