Could you show an example of what it is you’re actually trying to do? Why do you have to do this with Push/Pull? What do you mean by [quote=“nutcase, post:1, topic:18785”]
radius corners (hollow if poss)

This has been covered a number of times recently. Here’s a link to a thread that should help.

Once you have mastered the manual method you can start looking at plugins.

You can form the basic geometry pretty easily using native tools, then use the extension Flattery (which you can download from SketchUcation) to unfold the thing into a flat pattern.

What is the name of that plugin for the morph?

@Box used Fredo6’s Curviloft extension, which is available free from the sketchUcation plugin store (note: it depends on libFredo6, which must also be installed).
