Hello!
I’m following this tutorial and at ~7:48 where the Sweep Line is added
my Sweep Line node in R26.107 looks completely different and I cant figure out a way how to make it work in this setup.
Here is example:

Is it possible to advise what is the new workflow in R26 for sweeping lines?

Cheers!

Hi, it.

I think after Splines are introduced, this would be the way I would go to create the “donut”.

I think it is time that this series gets an update, and sorry that it is set to R23 and newer, which is not working.

All the best

Thanks! That did the trick.
Forgot to open up those “Profile” and “Path” pins, otherwise I wasn’t aware of those Geometry inputs.


Yeah there are bunch of improvements in R26.1 since these tutorials were made :D

Thanks a lot, it, for your patience and openness with this.

Yes, that is maybe the danger with Tech. Previews. But the Nodes will undoubtedly have a future, which presumedly will lead to changes anyway.

I have reported this problem, and I hope you will see more current material in future updates.

Have a great weekend
