I am having some difficulty with this shape. It is a spiral with a shape, and it tapers as it it travels down the spiral.


I thought this plug would work but I am getting odd results.

Any ideas?

Thank you for all,

Use the Perpendicular face tool by Chris Fullmer for put your 2 faces at the extremities of the curve!
Don't take care of their positions explode the groups select all
and launch 2 faces + path ;)

Hi Frenchy,

I used that when I set up the model. Also tried flipping the normals on the shaped ends, various options in the dialog box, its not behaving like I thought. Driving me crazy

I was guessing it may be that the spiral was precisely formed.

I'm trying but I still can't get it.

Thank you much, Kirill.

I'm trying to get up to speed. Not being a ruby cooker, I am ignorant of why a straight 'curve' is needed rather than an edge, multi- segmented or not, though you clearly state that a curve path is what is required. I wish error messages could be generated to help users, say if they make selection errors. Or perhaps that the plug be made to work with edge paths, so slow-witted users wouldn't need error messages.... So much.

You may try new version of 'LSS Toolbar' instead of '2 Faces + Path' plugin.
New version of 'LSS Toolbar' is still under construction, but fortunately '2 faces + path' tool is already implemented and work even more stable, than '2 Faces + Path ver. 1.5' stand-alone plugin.
You may take a look at demonstration video at https://sites.google.com/site/lssoft201 ... ss-toolbar

Interesting, Kirill. The first try gave me this result. I would expect a smoother transition from the circle to the lozenge shape. Any suggestions on a way to make the transition correctly?

Yes you can use 2 command buttons within '2 Faces + Path' section of web-dialog:
- Flip face normal
- Rotate face to dock vertices with other face
It is also possible to fix the situation after 'pathface entity' generation: you can rotate any of two faces manually and refresh 'pathface entity'.

I promise, that I'll write some manuals after 'LSS Toolbar' functionality update completion.
