 941.6 In reply to 941.1 Hi Daniele - the offset distance required for a particular angle and extrusion height can be calculated by this formula: Offset dist = Height x Tan( angle ) Could you maybe answer a few questions on how you'd expect a tapered extrude to work? This would help me when I get a chance to work on it. Do you expect a positive angle to go "outwards" and a negative angle to go inwards? I mean like a positive 18 degrees would give this: And -18 degrees would give this: Or is that reversed from what you'd expect? The angle is measured with the straight extrusion direction being 0 degrees, right? Do these things always happen on planar curves, or is there some construction that you would expect to be able to do on a non-planar curve? Are these always done on a closed loop, or do you need to do them on some open curves like a line segment? On things with sharp corners, how would you expect the corners to be filled in? Like for example in this situation: Should those corners be filled in with a little round arc type piece, or should they fill in with a straight extension to make a new sharp corner there? Is it important to switch between either one of these corner methods? Thanks, - Michael Attachments:
