    Poly Cahin to Curves?

    How do you take a polychain and turn it into a curve so I can do a rail extrude? Can anybody help?

    K to kill the polys, select points in order first to last, select make open curve command I would think, but I'm sure someone will tell you a quicker way

    I made the poly chain into a curve. I figured that part out but the geometry that I want to extrude dissappears when I run rail extrude and there is no extrusion. I put the main geometry in the forground and the curve in the background and just as soon as I click rail extrude and choose automatic or any of the others It vanishs. HELP? PLEASE!

    Dstorm used to have a plugin to convert polygon edges to curves. It still might be around.

    Quick tip - before you kill the polys you can use the select loop tool (right arrow key).

    Select two points in order (works with polys and edges too), hit select loop and it will select all of the points in order along the chain..great for creating polys, curves or just for quick selection of loops
