Hello Dr. Sassi,
I have another question, this time about sweep nurbs. I was trying many different ways but couldn’t get it done the way O want it. I am felling a bit like a rookie!
I am trying to build a suction hose usung only one sweep nurb (please refer to the image with the blue hose).
Couldnt get it done by now. I was trying different ways:
1) Using to Sweep nurbs: 1 Helix Sweep to get the spiral around the tube (hose) and one for the actual suction hose (Screenshot2).
2) Furthermore I modeled one segment and cloned it with a Mograph Cloner, then used a spline effector to clone it alone a spline.
Both ways are working. Finally I want to animate this suction hose but unfortunately the two sweep nurbs (first try) are
not corresponding “as one” when I animate them and the cloned segments (second try) are builing litte gabs when animating the spline (Spline Effector).
I also tried to model only one Sweep Nurb to get a “stable” result but couldnt get the “spiral helix form” with it. I tried to edit the scale and rotation of the sweep but it only affects the whole Sweep.
Can I get a little hint how to get a suction hose with only one sweep nurb?
Thanks again for your help!
