Very interesting Spline.design a new 3D tool, based on a web platform. Spline.design offers designers 3D design tools, all managed online also via multi-user. The platform allows designers to quickly create complex three-dimensional models with the help of control curves. Spline.design also offers a library of pre-built 3D models.
In the new update we find a new feature, 3D Paths in Spline, it’s a new feature that opens up a whole new world of possibilities, around spline management with advanced and creative controls, going to better manage.
New Feature – 3D Paths in Spline!
These are the new features of the new version:
– Create 3d routes
– Extrude and move vector shapes along the path
– Clone and align objects along the way
– Animate path parameters!
- Example scenes: https://app.spline.design/library?cat…
- Physics scene: https://app.spline.design/file/6ed98e…
3D Paths are meshes generated with points and bezier curves, allow you to easily create objects like pipes, tubes, ropes, cables, rails, paths, etc. As well as creating paths for other objects to follow.
- Learn more about 3d paths from the docs: https://docs.spline.design/2a23d8021f…
