push pull circles with faces 111707

Postby rhankc » Sun Nov 18, 2007 1:05 am

I am working on drawing a hand rail, and it has a 2" dia. profile for the grip.
Question is: when i push pull or follow me this round profile, some sections show the circles facets and some show smooth without the circles edge showing. How do I make it consistent? without hiding all those lines, of course..
Thanks,
Hank

I like it when I can answer my own inquiry. The circles that extrude smooth are still intact circles. The circles that extrude with facets showing are circles made of line segments (exploded circles).

Hank, do you have the Weld ruby script? If not get it here: http://www.smustard.com/scripts/

Select the "broken" arc or circle and run the weld script. It makes the arc or circle intact again so your push/pull will be nice and smooth.
