Can I convert a mesh into a path?
« on: August 10, 2009, 01:22:47 pm »

I made an outline with a mesh, and now I want to extrude it, but mesh's do not extrude. So can I turn a mesh into a path?

I also cannot fill the outline for some reason.

As far as I know, you can't convert a mesh into a path.

There was a Program whereby you could take a mesh and it would follow the mesh, its old I think I got it somewhere ....Headwax should know what its called.

When it's old we can always count on headwax ;)

I belief this script is somewhere in the ASL database.

EDIT: could not find it in the database, but i found it in my script database ;)....or something like it   :-\ ???

No not that one Floyd this was before scripts came out ...... it would follow the path of say, a terrain so you could
get your object to go up a mountain ...it was a DOS based program I think  ....I`m older than Headwax!!

Age is just a state of mind!  In my head, I'm still in my 40's.  Now, if I could only convince the rest of my body!
