Given a curve node's output (in this case, a quadrilateral Bezier), how can I get a tube shape? I'm looking to make a rope from the curve.

With Curve to Mesh you get the desired mesh, but no mapping coordinates to be able to use your shader.

If you want/need to add seamless shading/texturing to your mesh generated with Curve to Mesh, follow this post: Node "Curve to Mesh" with UVs in Blender 3.1?

You can use a Curve to Mesh node and link another curve (for instance, a Curve Circle primitive) into the Profile Curve socket to sweep it along.

  • $\begingroup$ @adrianli You should be able to do that with an Object Info node. Select your curve from the scene in the dropdown, and link the Geometry output to the Profile Curve input on Curve to Mesh. $\endgroup$
