  1. So I have been stuck on this issues for several days now, all the google links to similar issues have long since become purple. Two nice members of the Houdini discord tried helping me, yet i still can't seem to get this to work. I am working on a game that has quite a few pipes. So an optimized pipe building tool is simply a must for us. I can get the geometry generated perfectly fine, but am having an issue with optimizing it without severe uv stretching. This issue occurs from removing inline points with the facet node on the original path curve. I am trying to transfer the UV map from the hi poly: http://imgur.com/qMP3XGg onto the low poly. http://imgur.com/6zx2Nnx I would prefer to stay away from sweeping. I understand sweeping gives very nice uvs, but this is a branching curve and the branches wont connect like polywire. Using boolean on the intersecting geometry gives less desirable geometry and messes up swept uvs. http://imgur.com/CvbR631 It doesn't necessarily need to be uved like this to begin with. If I can find another way of uv mapping it from the "Path_Fused" node I would be just as pleased. File Included Branch Subnetwork_v1.hip
