As a workaround to your problem I can inform that there are tube laser cutters nowadays that have tilting laser beam so you do not have to make the cut perpendicular to the surface of the pipe to be able to manufacture it.
I already tried. Best would be if a loft can be made from a line or point, but that is not possible. I'll try by using FC0.17 instead of FC0.16...chrisb wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 11:55 pmPerhaps you can find a solution based on the following thoughts:
- Search the forum on how to map a sketch to a cylinder
- Map the sketch to the inside of your tube
- map it enlarged on the outside
- make a subtractive loft.
Something like this. I did not map the faces, it's only to show the loft:
