Marionette beginner: Trying to create parametric extruded object

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create parametric extruded object. The tutorials I found are way to primative to be useful. I need to be able to take a simple 2d profile (think moulding) and extrude it base on the particular need. I work at a museum and we have simple metal rails of different lengths, but all the same profile.  I link text and records in order to create a schedule of our inventory.

Have you tried the mouldings plugin?  You can keep a library of profiles that you commonly use.

@grant_PD Thanks for your response. I did look for a moulding plugin, but could not find the one you are referring to. Where would I find it?
