3D Polylines
Read 1021 times

Hi Everyone,

What are the 3D Polylines used for?

Can I draw objects & render them with 3D Polylines as surfaces in Deluxe or Extrude them etc?.
I don't really understand, could someone give me an explanation & a couple of examples on the uses for the 3D Polylines, I can't seem to do much with them at all or understand what I have read so far?

Thanks
David

Hello David.  In addition to the online & offline Help Documentation, the TurboCAD Community Wiki is a great place for answers to questions such as yours.

Here is a link to the Wiki's 3D Polyline page.

IMO their applications are rather limited, but I do often find them useful as sweep paths.

Hi Everybody,

Alvin,
Thanks for the Link although I am still a little confused about the applications, being a newbie a lot of the information I have found leaves more to think about than what it answers but that's only a lack of of experience with TurbCad from my end.

Henry,
I see what you are saying, just wanted to know that's all.

Thanks for the replies.
