Extrude problem

Recommended Posts

Hello.
I have made a spline and I'm trying to extrude it but it gets messed up. I exported the drawing from Illustrator as .ai file(V8) and then imported it in C4D. I want it to look the same way as it does in Illustrator but I want it to be 3D. It looks alright before I put it in the "Extrude".

Looks pretty complex spline "inferno" :)

Are your splines closed?

Did you tried export separated into two or three separated splines?

Can you post *,ai file?

    Here is a link to the ai file. The splines are connected. I haven't tried to export into separate splines.

    btw, all splines are "doubled"(they overlay each other). Not sure, but I think it was problem with importing splines from illustrator. I was read info abot it somewhere on german forum and don´t know if last service update solve that...

    You can make the imported spline editable as any object and then inspect spline segment by segment.

    By this you have also the ability to extrude certain parts of the spline, not the whole thing.

    How do I make a spline editable since "Make Editable" is greyed out?

    Yeah, how DID you fix that ? :) Cinema appears to have zero tools for removing spline points we don't want when they are directly on top of the ones we do ! :)

    ...veeery simply :)

     

    - select one/few points of spline

    - press U~W     (select connected)

    - press U~I         (invert selection)  // in case you see selection also over previous selected points, it means spline is doubled/overlapped

    - press Del key

     

    ...one spline segment solved,  few next remain (ofcourse, at first created backup copy of source spline)

    That's what I was missing - didn't know that applied to splines as well ! Nice one, @bezo
