I am trying to model a tree with curves, and I need to extrude 2 paths from 1 vertex, but when I try to do it, it separates the vertex. If I try to join it with F, it says "Can't create a segment". Is it possible to make a branch with curves and why not?

enter image description here

Is there any workaround or addon? Because I need it with curves.

    $\begingroup$ Curve can't split into 2, when extruding from the middle of the curve new unconnected curve will be created. This is likely a limitation of the curve object; either use 2 overlapping ones or convert to mesh and retopo the junction. Generally when creating trees some addons are used, e.g. Sapling, SCA Tree Generator (free ones) and more payed ones $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I'm going to use your advice with using 2 overlapping curves. $\endgroup$
