Use LDCad flextube with 2x2 round plates - Jaco van der Molen - 2021-02-02

Hi all,

For a model I need to do something like this:

It is a flextube formed in a certain way using LDCad.
Then, that same tube needs to be "filled" with 2x2 round plates to make the curve
And 2x2 round bricks where the tube is 3 plates high/long and straight.

Would this be possible with a template?

Thanks!

Thanks. Lots of trial and error, but this lead to me understanding templates for flex things a little better in LDCad.

Attached is the current template, might anyone be interested.
Needs perfecting though, but for now, this will do perfectly for my model.
