How do you extrude a shape along a path?


I have a very difficult railing that I want to shape, I can do that in 3ds max but not in Archicad because the angle doesn't get correct, is there any way how I can use the Morph to do it?

Thanks,
Festim

You mentioned railing, so have you tried the Railing tool? You can create complex profiles in the shape you want that will follow the path of the railing.

Another way - morph-face can follow an 3D-Morph-path with curves:
