Description: This command create a circular cross-section tube that surrounds the selected curve with the specified radius.
Inline mode usage:
- pipe -h: Displays the help file that summarizes the parameters for this command.
- pipe -s <nameCurve> -p <radius>: Create the pipe along the given curve with the specified radius.
Interactive mode usage:
- Invocation: pipe
- Rail curve. Axis-curve where the pipe is centered in.
- Radius. Radius of the circular-cross section pipe. Correspoding distance from the rail curve to the closest point in the pipe.
We're going to create a torus from a circle by using the pipe command.
