Hi Christina (@eneroth3),
Recently @DaveR mentioned your “Upright Extruder” plugin.
It is very well suited to create the thread of a screw or nut. So far I created the threads manually.
Do you still plan to maintain and enhance this plugin?
If so, then I have the following enhancement ideas:
In the plugin descrption you write:
“To avoid unexpected results make the first edge of the path start at the profile face’s plane and be perpendicular to it.”
Could the plugin makes the starting face perpendicular to the first edge of the path by projecting it along the first edge? (and then also connect bac to the original face)
Secondly, it would be nicer, if the generated faces would not be triangulated, but be planar quads, by having the extruded edges being parallel to the path along which the path is extruded.
If you consider enhancing the Plugin, please let me, know.
