Now you can create your pipes in two clicks. Just create a CV or EP nurbs curve, select the curve and run the script.
You will have access to change the Radius, number of Edge Loops and number of Edge Rings for the pipe.

The script creates a very simple "rigg" to change the shape of the pipe without moving the cv's.

It works on windows, and it should work under linux as well. I can't have access to a linux machine, so I don't know if it crashes in linux.


Open pipeGen_v1.mel in the script editor and execute the script.
A window will appear.


1- Execute the script
2- Select the Nurbs Curve
3- Click on Generate Pipe Button
4- Change pipe values
5- To finish and delete all the setup for the curve, hit New Pipe/Finish button

For any questions or improvements don't hesitate to contact to me.

NEW in 1.1

Now you can decrease the size of the radius to 0.0001
Added a checkbox to hide / unhide the curve manipulators
