Extrusions, Tip of the Day

As you probably know, the Cadimage Extrusion tool allows you to extrude a profile along a path. But did you know that once you’ve done that, you can also Dynamically Edit the path?

To do this (edit dynamically that is), you need to use one of the Extrusion’s Edit Modes, which you get to from the Cadimage – Extrusion menu.

There are several different edit modes, each for doing a different operation.

XY Edit Mode lets you shift nodes around in Plan view.

Planar Arc Edit Mode lets you do the same, but with Arcs instead.

Spline Edit Mode lets you edit the path as a spline, letting you do crazy stuff like this.

For more information on the Edit Modes, check our Knowledge Base here, or just have a go yourself. Once you’ve tried using them, you’ll figure them out pretty quickly.
