Hi all,

I want to create pipe-models from graphs in CE.
I am able to generate the "pipe" models for the straight segments using a .obj asset. But as soon as the graph curves the bend does not align with the rest of the network. Is there a way to do this?

I then wondered if it would be possible to create a 3D buffer of the selected line segments (similar to 3D Analyst), using Python in CE resulting in a multipatch which I can add afterwards. Any advice?

Thanks,

Carl

Hi Carl,

Instead of inserting directly, first use the comp(f) to split into each polygon of the shape.

Ok ?

Matt
