‘Flare’ Extrude Plugin

Hi KB,

I ran the plugin twice…

Create a cylinder primitive
Select top surface, extrude 2,1,3,0.7
Select new top surface, extrude -2,1,4,1

(I don’t have a copy here, so I can’t check this, but in theory this should work)



Another one to be added to the list soon….

Originally designed for building steam domes for locomotives it has many applications.

It works similarly to a normal extrude, but it performs several at once and attempts to follow a smooth arc of 90 degrees.

The interface below shows the parameters you can enter – the first 2 are the same as the extrude operation.
Extrusions is the number of steps to use in the extrusion (a value of 1 gives the same result as a normal extrude)

Scale is a degree of curvature – 1 means full curve, 0 mean straight edge – values outside 0 to 1 are allowed but results may be unpredictable.

And finally what it was intended for…

This was created with two runs of the plugin, with a positive then negative bevel…

Another use…

Hi PaulGausden,
andnbsp;Thanks for checking, I must be doing something goofy- I’ll have to work on it. Used those settings and came up with this–

Hello PaulGausden,
andnbsp;It doesn’t seem to matter where I set the bevel I get a flat top. Could you give me your settings for the mushroom so I can try to duplicate, please?
