REALLY looking forward to this. The script is going to have so many uses.
Will the script support texturing (UV mapping)? One of the images is showing the checker pattern but that could be a Procedural or a Cycles shader…
yes there is a UV map,
shown below is the texturing template for a 5 sides by 64 segments tube
note that all this is doable (since 2010) using mcjRibbons https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts/mcjribbons
the difference is that the new script is that you’ll just have
to create the path, and the script will take care of keeping the “tube” non-kinked
