Round pipes present a unique challenge. Using the Extract Isocurve command, small pipe sections are separated out. Once detached, they can be offset inwards or outwards, depending on the detail needed.
- [Instructor] Next up we're going to play 3-D plumber…and build some funky piping.…The key of this video like many of my other videos,…will be to leverage existing geometry whenever possible.…Let's zoom out from the example,…I've got the path already drawn,…so we're going to go ahead…and just make our basic pipe command.…That's on the Solid menu.…Here is Pipe, I'm going to select the curve…and this is the usual where you get to select…the radius or diameter…and most people will just pick one diameter…to be the entire length.…
However, we're going to mix it up a little bit here.…I'm going to start off at 20…and then we're going to end a little bit bigger…at the opposite side,…I'm going to make that 36,…but also I just want to point out,…you could put another circle profile anywhere…and make it any size.…I'm not going to do that,…so I'll just right-click to accept.…And there we have our varying radius pipe…from one end to the other.…Now one of the keys to the operations I'm going to show you…is we need to be working on a single surface.…
