Is there a way to auto convert angles to curves/arcs along a single line path?
I’m working on building some models of organic forms (plants mostly) that have long curvy cylinders. I usually use the Line tool and just freehand the basic path and then use the Follow Me tool, but I’m finding that the result is a little too rigid looking at the joints.
To manage this I’ve been going through and manually converting each angled bend into a curve/arc by using the Tape Measure tool to mark 1" out from the base of the angle in either direction. Then I use the 2-Point Arc tool to draw a curve inside of the angle, then delete the geometry outside the curve.
Here are the different results produced. the first stick figure being a basic freehand drawn line path, the second being the cylindrical shape that’s produced from it using the follow me tool, the third being the line pathway after the angles have been converted to curves, and the 4th being the cylindrical shape that’s produced from it using the follow me tool.
