Posted this one a few months ago, but didn't get any clear answers:
I'm trying to draw a pipe which tapers along a user defined path, but
which starts with eliptical cross section, and finishes with circular
cross section, morphing smoothly between the two.
I noticed a previous posting requesting info on a related problem of
how to do tapered extrusion of elipses into conoids, but it didn't
produce any answers.
Is there any way to do the above using existing AutoCAD2002 tools ?
Any LISP routines or affordable 3rd party tools out there that will do
Many thanks in anticipation
Turbocad Pro will do it with ease and is about $200.00 less than Rhino.
Others that can do this (on the expensive side) besides Catia are Pro
Engineer, Inventor, Solid Works, Solid edge, Alebre Design. I'm sure there
