Thougt also about rotating at the nodes, but its not possible with the normal tube-command. Maybe Graphisoft could add an extension for the tube with the possibilities of rotating the profiles on nodes in the future?

Now- its getting interesting. Didnt know/understand that and ignored it until now. - thanks. Lets look what we cam make with it..... stay tuned.

Braza wrote:Yes, the tricky part is the direction of the 0° direction on that plane. It is the projection of the Z axis to the plane, but sometimes is flipped 180° so the tube is less twisted. Sometimes this flipping is not needed for the model, but it can't be controlled intuitively.
The node rotation reference plane is in the bisector of the angle defined by two segments axis, right?
I can see that the geometry gets much distortions with rotations. Does the "Gravity Tube" totally eliminates them?
