Quick Tip: Mesh to Curve


mesh to curve

Olav Bergsvik is producing some very slick 'quick tip' videos. In his first one, he's converting part of a mesh back to curves for some procedural modeling.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. when using curve modifier with array, your object (the seeds in this example) might get distorted when you look closely on it. to avoid this you can use the dupliframes option on the curve path instead

  2. I'm a big fan of quick tips. I can't believe how many different ways there are to do the same thing. It's like a game.
    I even thought about sponsoring a contest: make this with the least amount of steps. One day I'll do that.
