Simple Pipe

Ever want to select one or multiple curves and just hit a button to make a pipe?  And then slide sliders around to edit those curves, and also be able to move the curve CVs and have the pipe move with it?  Well, now you can.  Pipe away!

To use:

1. Save either the script to your documents\maya\*version*\prefs\scripts folder.
2. Start Maya.
3. In your command line or script editor, type the following as MEL and execute:

   SimplePipe;


CREATE
Select one or many curves and click this button to make a pipe.

DELETE
Deletes your pipes and cleans all the junk.

FINALIZE
Deletes the junk and cleanly separates the pipes from the curves.


Remembers your settings, just in case you tend to make the same sized pipes a lot.

Known issues:
- if you rotate a curve or edit the cvs enough, the pipe geometry will invert.  The fix is to press Delete, then press Create.  Should fix it.
- if your pipe squishes in at some points, rebuild your curve with more CVs
