Shaping end of pipe


Recommended Posts

I want to draw a shape into the end of a pipe (solid). Today I have to subtract other solids from the pipe end to create the shape i want.


What I want to be able to do is something like folding a 2d shape onto the pipe and cut, as this is what the production departement have to do (I make a cutting-template for them to tape onto the pipe). I know the 2D-profile I want. The problem with subraction with solids like cubes is that the slope created on the pipe will differ depending on angle. Creating a helix is a possibility but not very easy to work with.


Anyone know of a method I can use for this?
