a newbie question which is not

Recommended Posts

Ok let s talk about something not so simple(at least with lightwave)

 

 

I know the way A:M works and that it can offer some crazy tools for every kind of situations but what about this one ? i want to make a race track and i want every curve to bank on the Z axis (which is a bank).Is this possible ?

 

In blender you can have a "hand" on the bank rotation axis before you extrude an object.

 

Ideas around ?

 

:huh:

Easy, at least I think, the sweeper plugin does that quite well.

A few tweaks is all that are needed.

 

Hope it helps

Ok I is this what you meant by 15-45-90 degrees? It needs a few tweaks but it took me about 1min to model.

This not what i mean , in some software you have a bank control on cp , imagine these NAScar track or roller coaster when the outside extremity goes up . By hand it s just a nightmare.
