Hi forum! I am making a form from 2 circles and a line. to start i make the line. set 2 points on the line. set the work plane to the point and draw my circle than do that on the other point. Then I make a solid form from these 3 items. The goal is to have a tube that is only part of the line. The problem is the circles are not aligned and as I move the point this causes the tube to narrow in the middle... it must be simpler to make a simple tube... what am i missing ... please help thanks -e

Why not just set a workplane and extrude a circle?

well I am making this tube as part of an adaptive component. so I would like the extursion to follow the line which will adapt to parametric input. It was working nice with just one circle and one line. but now i have multiple lines meeting at a point and the extrusions start to join and mitre at places. I dont mind this except for the fact that at certian geometries the extrusions fail because of this mitre. soooo I ended up making two circles on the lines that are a certain distance from the end of the lines and creating a form from these 2 circles and the line. This keeps the extrusion from running the whole length of the line and keeps the extrusions from joining in the mitre.

but then i get this twisted form which tapers. every solution is a new problem i guess.

so a few questions. is there a way to stop the tubes from the join and mitre if the lines meet?

Is there a better way to keep the extrusions from running the whole length of the line. I guess I could have a smaller line hosted on these two points that are on the larger line and then just go back to the one circle extrusion... that might solve my twisting....

and just cause now im curious... is there a way to align the circles? I tried making the center mark visible and aligning that to a reference plane I made of a plane of the point but when I go to align that 2nd circle it wont let me... oy vey this is a complicated program Smile Thanks for your help

It would have been far better for you to have posted this information in your original post.  Now perhaps someone else can answer your question about ADAPTIVE COMPONENTS rather than the simple extrusion you implied in your original post.

sorry about that . i thought the crucial point was aligning the circles... my bad.
