Hi guys,
Why can't i use Rail Extrude with 2 point polys? I'm making a lightning type shape using points and hard angles, no curves. Why can't I just place the disc on the end of my line and Rail Extrude? Is there another way?

make a spline from the points of your 2point polys and rail extrude set to knots...

I use LWCAD for extruding along a curve. :thumbsup:

What is the rail extrude equivalent in LWCAD? I'm relatively new to LWCAD but I've been through it and I'm not seeing it.

So what would be your process to extrude a linear feature such as a sidewalk along an irregular curving path, maintaining uniform width and using LWCAD?

Use Profiler, as far as I know this is the only LWCAD tool that works similar to Rail Extrude.
