multiple size and color in a single extrusion


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to achieve the following effect with babylon.js in 3d for a visualizer for 3d printing. I need to be able to gradually change the color and the size(or shape) of the extrusion along a single extruded path. It is possible?

Try looking at tube meshes http://playground.babylonjs.com/#Z1SIC#1 . See http://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#1A4DON#19 to see how to smoothly change size using the radiusFunction parameter. As for changing color you could try to use the gradient Material like in the previous playground but it's not properly aligned to the tube so it might be better to manually create your own gradient textures to map properly to the tubes shape.
