I guess in this case I would not smooth edges that are adjoining a face perpendicular to axis of rotation. I wonder if that is a definable parameter or is that a common desired outcome.

It now works exactly the same as the built-in Smooth tool, which ignores perimeter edges in the smoothing. Should you subsequently add faces to these edges the will remain unsmoothed, but a quick use of the built-in smooth tool will merge them if desired. This is surely better than having them auto-smooth as the face is added because then it's harder to unsmooth those edges you want to stay unsmoothed than it is to smooth the edges you don't smooth later on !?

:ecstatic:

Actually I now find that in this application, I can smooth with this ruby and then twiddle the soften smooth edges dialog for the desired effect. I can now really crank these out--if only the project goes forward... :?

Thanks a bunch TIG!

Thanks TIG. That's even more perfect. Now you're doing all my work for me and SU is not so fun anymore. :cry:

Just kiddin. Really, it seems custom made for what I was trying to do. :enlight:

James !
If you follow the link in the recent post announcing the update it will take you to the first post in this thread, although for most tools this is where the download link is, here it explains at the end of the text that all EEby...tools now come in a single zipped set, which has its own thread. The link to that thread's download page is give at the end of the first page in each of the EEby...tool's threads [including EEbyLathe!].

So get the zipped set, and install all of the EEby...tools, files and folders as directed - and you'll get the whole EEby...toolset which includes EEbyLathe :geek:

First off, let me say thank you for all the great tools. I just discovered this EEbyLathe. I seem to have an issue if one of the edges of my face is along the blue axis and is unbroken, and I rotate along the blue axis as well. The extruded shape does not end in a face, it is "hollow." If I change the shape that is along the axis of rotation it ends in a face as expected. Is there something I'm doing wrong?
Thanks for your help,
Michael

Unsure as I can't see exactly what you are doing...
However, IF it doesn't form a 'closing face', AND you have picked a true axis etc, you can always edit the extrusion's group and over-draw an edge to force a face to form where you want it... :?

Seems you have better way to make a simple Copy Rotation of the face for close your volume?

Thank you for looking. Editing the group and adding the line is certainly easy enough- I was concerned I was doing something wrong or didn't understand something. Thanks again, Michael
