I'm having the following problem and would hope someone can help me there. I usually use curves to wrap a profile around an object, e.g. a cornice around a building. This however results in squished sides when there are edges, as can be seen in the picture as well. I know why it happens (the profile is projected in a 45° angle on the edge) and how to solve it afterwards, but with a complex object it is quite annoying to scale it with squrt(2) at every corner. Is there a solution to avoid this alltogether and have all sides of the resulting cornice be parallel to the object?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance! :)

  • $\begingroup$ I tried this already, but seems to me it literally brings the curve in a 2 dimensional setting, bringing it to z=0 and flattening it in the process if it had a more complex shape, so this wasn't a suitable solution to me $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ are you sure you were able to do it with a 3D curve? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ No, as the cirve was turned into a 2d curve, making it unasable for cornices where I use it imgur.com/GOG1LF6 $\endgroup$
