I am having some difficulty in drawing simple pipe runs in 3D. I have no
experience with 3D, but have nutted out some slab layouts etc, but have the
If I draw pipe CL, if it is not in an ortho plane then the extrusion of a
circular face does not follow the path, but follows what appears to be the
projection of the CL onto the ortho plane. I have tried setting UCS to the
object, namely the pipe CL, then rotating around the appropriate axis to get
Z in the right direction, but the result is the same.
I see that extruding a face along a path may do the trick, but I cannot get
the circle which represents the end of the pipe to be recognised as a face /
Any suggestions as to where I'm going wrong?
The drawings are just simple representations for visualisation purposes.
