Light Tube Maker


between Exterior mesh and Interior surface




This script creates an articulated light tube between an exterior and interior surface. The geometric rig takes into account each surface's normals at a point in relation to the point at the other end of the tube. The tube is built out to have an accordion middle with a light dome or intake grill on the exterior and a glass lens or intake grill on the interior.
