View Full Version : extrude on path

hello, i need to extrude a molding profile on this path. i can't seem to get rail extrude to work properly. it's always been finicky. i can't convert this to a spline, as it rounds out the corners. is this something that can be accomplished through LWCAD? thanks

I think you should extrude it in several steps.
And then merge sections by hand.
Also we can see it's symmetrical in two axes.
So you just need quarter of it, and then mirror in X and then in Y.

This video shows how simple it is to apply a profile in LWCAD for things like skirting boards. You can add your own profiles to the LWCAD presets - 2D or 3D - I just chose a bundled preset for the example.
