revolve around an axis between two points

Recommended Posts

I need to revolve a curve around an axis between two points.

I might be missing something obvious but I can't figure out how to do this in obj/modeling.

the Revolve tool would otherwise be perfect if it wasn't requiring the "direction" value to function.

I can't figure a way to align that automatically with a point's XYZ from the origin.

Any suggestions?

not sure what is your exact case, but here is an example that revolves using axis between first and last points of the input curve

would prolly help to understand if you click on the Axis Direction label in anim's file above, to see the snippets instead of resultant numbers
