Revolved Extrude - new plugin
« on: November 16, 2016, 19:05:24 pm »
Following on from my Profile2Helix plugin, this similar idea produces a surface so that 3D MOPs can be applied to cut the shape.

The idea is to draw half of an object, similar to the lathe MOP, and it will be rotated around the left hand end of a polyline to produce a circular surface.

I've attached a simple cb file, just install the plugin, open the cb file, click one of the lines then run the plugin.
You should soon see how it can be used.

In the picture you can see the profile line I made in red and the surface it produced in green.

In some cases the facets face the wrong way but I'm working on that issue. - Fixed
Edit: sorry I forgot to attach the example cb file, just attached in now.

Edit: Version 2 attached
1. Fixed vertical walls showing inside out.

Edit: Version 2.1 attached
Please remove the old Profile2Surface.dll from the CamBam Plugins folder first

1. Renamed to "Revolved Extrude"
2. Moved for Plugins menu to;

Top menus           Draw->Surface->Revolved Extrude
Right click menu    Draw->Surface->Revolved Extrude

Edit: Version 3 attached

Has been compiled with .NET version 4 assemblies and references to CamBam v1.0 dlls

Has been modified and tested to work on;

    Windows
    Linux

Works with CamBam version 1 ONLY

That profile reminds me of a ceiling moulding, perhaps you could sweep it out in a linear fashion and
do your own mouldings.

Dave,

You could probably use CamBam 'Extrude' for that

New version added to first post.

The assumption is that you want to cut the inside of any surface generated, however on the first version walls that were truly vertical were inside out, this version fixes that.

Version1 surface is on the left, new version2 surface is on the right.

Great work, Eddy! A rotational 3D object.
I just wonder whether you are the best programmer among woodworkers or the best woodworker among programmers. :)

Nice words thanks, but the answer is, somewhere in the middle of both.  ;D
And as time moves on, slowly sinking down both  :(

I think the name RevolvedExtrude would be more useful in helping people find it.  That's the term Solidworks uses.

I wonder if a RevolvedCut would also be possible.  For example, perform a standard extrude, and then cut part of it away.

Rename to "Revolved Extrude" as suggested, this sounds like a sensible idea.

New version 2.1 added to first post in this thread.

Also the menu items for this plugin have changed, see first post for details.

Source files added here.

I just tried this to fill a void in CamBam and realized it only seems to do 360 degrees.  Is it possible to set it up to do 180 degrees?  Or is there a way to split a surface in half in CamBam?  

I would note I am using 098.  

I notice you say only works with 1.0, but the David's plugin page shows 098.  Is that a different plugin?
