Extrude points along Curve

Recommended Posts

Hi! I wanted to know if there is a way to extrude points to generate curves from that extrusion, I was surprised that the Extrude SOP didn't accepted that kind of operation.

I had a workaround for doing this using the "Copy to points" SOP to copy the input points (the ones that will sweep trough the target curve) to each point of the target curve and orient them via "orient" attrib also I had to define an "id" attrib" for each point so then I'll connect them with the "Add" SOP.

Anyone has better ideas to tackle this? Thanks!

Hi Ronald,

the sweep SOP surface can be set to rows. It accepts pscale, up and N attributes as well as cross section curves for the second input.

Thank! Didn't know about the "orient alogn curve" SOP, so useful. For this to work I had to connect the "cross Section" points with an "Add" SOP, but they were correctly connected through the Curve with "Columns" activated. Thanks Again!
