extrude along path - PLEASE

Recommended Posts

After many years of VW use there is still this command which is incredibly frustrating due to its bad creation process, it is incredible that after such a long availability this command is still incomprehensible. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP. for example below the profile is connected to the corner of the bottom of the walls and top right of the profile but the resulting object is offset. the profile options do not change anything or make extrusion impossible to create. We need another command very quickly.

Hey All,


I usually just enter the Profile editor and move the profile to where the green and red lines cross...sometimes you have to flip the profile...no biggie...the concept is that the profile is extruded along the path at the CENTER of its BOUNDING BOX...
