    Bridge tool similar to MODO's?

    I have two pipes that I'd like to connect with a nice curve to it. In MODO, I can select the two end polys and do a poly bridge with settings to make it curved. In Lightwave, there are no options with the bridge tool.

    Any suggestions?

    The awBezierBridge plugin installs fine for me on LW 2015.3, 64-bit on Windows 7. Works like a champ.

    I tried the UB Mac version. When I click "Add Plug-ins" a dialogue box pops up stating that it 'Cannot load external plug-in file...'

    OK. He has a Contact page on his website, might be worth sending a message. It works really well.

    He said that someone else compiled the Mac version for him. This is why the Mac version is stuck at 0.9 beta, while the PC version is on 1.2.1.

    Anyone care to compile the latest version for Mac?

    Click on Modeler's icon, and toggle 32 bit mode, and try installing plugin again..

    If all else fails use Px_Bezier in tube mode to create a section you can weld in. It is pretty interactive, and you can control the radius of the tube and segments.
