Tubing in 3D

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to draft an electric car in 3D. It is constructed from 1" tubing. The tubes bend in several places, the bends are both horizontal and vertical planes. I am unable to draft this. I have attempted to extrude circles to create tubes of appropriate length, and rotating them to the right angle, but I cannot join them to form a continuous tube, also, the angle is at one point, wheras, on the car the bends are gradual, as would be formed by filleting a straight angle. How could I accomplish this properly ?

You may have to use a third party add-on such as MCnurbs or 3D Manager. Go to add on products page and check them out. Unfortunately they are not free.
