trying to extrude along a path
on Jan 25, 2006 at 8:24:57 pm

I am trying to create skirting boards that follow edges of rooms,doors,windows etc.I am using extrude for this.
The problem I am having is that the extruded skirting board does not appear to be attachet to the path curve. I dont know what the correct settings are in the extrude dialog box.
Under surfaces extrude?

Also my extrusion seems to taper at the end point. I just wanrt a simple skirting board all the way around the bottom of the room which is an irregular shape. Must I use another profile curve for the end point. Also where is it best to position the profile curve.

Any help appreciated the way I have been doing this so far is verytime consuming. I have a lot of window/door frames to complete using this method if it is the easiest.
Any help appreciated this is killing me..cant find simple explanantion on help files...maybe I am looing at it wrong!?1? Barry
