Tube Tool Blender 2.74+

Tool to quickly make tubing between selected faces



The repository is available on github, there is a master branch which is most stable and various experimental branches for code i'm not certain about and exploration of ideas. The controls pretty much explain themselves, but I recommend using F6 after triggering the Operator (currently from W specials " add simple tubing" or spacebar and search for 'tube' )

Enjoy, and bug reports to the tracker please. This might be my last Blender add-on for a while.

    1. Marvin, yes maybe! Personally I don't have time for menus, just hit space -> tu -> add simple tube. I'll strongly consider moving it to the ADD menu. yes, makes sense.

    1. if you download the zip, it contains a folder called 'tubetool' -- it is this folder which contains the addon files. You can copy this folder into your blender scripts/addons folder, it will show up.

  6. Don't know how to report a bug - it was working fine, but now all my tubes are elliptical. Size, length, , curve shape are all fine, just the roundness has gone......

    2. i've tested this on a latest version of Blender and it doesn't produce weird results, you might be applying this to an object with a sheared matrix?
