Part2 Little polygon

Part3 tubes

※It is not perfect, but if you do not have a preference, this is enough. :3d:

A way which would produce less polygons is by using same technique but positioning origin on the middle of each element (instead of border). ;)

Also, before rotating elements, be sure to remove hidden faces to create less polygons.

I also do a method to decide the rotation axis, but I chose an easy method. :cry:

That's cool to see such video in a short format. The 1st method is nice to create tubes and second to create cylinders.

The 2 videos you made are showing how easy it is now to rotate elements thank to v2.4. ;)

You can increase the accuracy of the shape by using 5.028 instead of 5 for the length of elements, this way the elements will line up much better with each other.

Your addon is using meshes. The videos @akkechi made are useful if users want to keep the clean/smooth/lowpoly aspect which can't be get after a voxelization. ;)

@akkechi your 3rd video is private ;)
