I have missed it..since it was out a couple of months ago apparently finally for 64 bit.
just installed it in lw 11.5 64 bit ..and it seems to be working as it should.
http://www.pictrix.jp/?s=Px_Bezier&submit=Search

Px_bezier is one of the best curve,poly & extending tools for lightwave, and all for free, and very powerful with snapping, saving and loading of
paths ..extending geometry from selected polys, drawing splines with hard or soft corners, adjustable nots and corners,drawing belt, drawing of polyshapes,drawing tube/pipes..twisting, sub or non subpatch switching, looping or non looping.

7 different polygon types, extend,extrude,belt,tube,curve,line,face.....the line mode will give you 2 point polychains directly.
Built in undo/redo
save and load path
full bezier control over segments divisions,straight or rounded

Please donate if you can afford a little..pictrix is worth it.

Yeah...the japanese pages arenīt nice to enter..even though we now have google translate, both pictrix,dstorm, had/has some excellent stuff, that dont reach that next level in marketing/publishing and therefore somehow get lesser attention, liquid pack, jetstream etc..and eventually thereīs a risc
that they stop in development due to lack of interest...(where did jetstream go?..and liquid pack how useful is that as liquid fluid solution?)

Mostly though..that is the japanese developers responsibility, to simply make pages available in english for european users.
pictrix needs an overhaul of the pages too, I find it a little cluttered and the news update pages of plugins should be better somehow, otherwise He is an extremly valuable human resource for the LW community along with Denis pontonnier.

I would also like to see some changes in denis web page too, but it is understandable if time is a factor, one thing that I could think of...why not let Lightwave web masters work in conjuction and help out with web pages for those developers offering such huge amount
of free plugins and valuable tools..a win win situation? but then again, lightwave group and web masters might be to busy to perhaps.

Blogs and websites like liberty3d has a good web framework, and sometimes update the blog with news such as pictrix plugins.

Then you got this short from erikals..shows extrusion and some nice twisting suitable for coords cables etc...

I suggest checking the videos first from the pictrix site..

Hmmm...tried to make a donation. Paypal is saying that currently Japanese Paypal accounts are only able to SEND payments and this recipient is not able to RECEIVE payments.

Hope they get that sorted out soon.

Anyone can dl and alter online documentation and offer it back to the original authors. Famously, programming and documentation are different, even opposing, skill sets. Powerful plugins may not be used to their fullest extent if all the potential tricks aren't documented, findable, and centralized.

This would seem to be RIGHT up LightWiki's street: centralizing improved documentation for Pictrix and DPont and other providers.

That is such an amazing plugin, I'd love to see videos of all the other Pictrix plugins.

And is made worse by needing someone who can write documentation in English and at least read Japanese at a far better level than google's translate tool.
