Thoughts about flexible parts

Re: Thoughts about flexible parts
wow, maybe we can merge both approaches.

we agree on that the ends should be subparts, present in the library.

when doing the sweeping technique advocated by me, a "middle" segment of unit length in Y dimension
extending from 0 to 1 would be sweeped along some path.
For example, for a hollow pneumatic hose, this would be two 2-4cyli's.

When the "smooth" method should be applied, those VERY files could be used to infer
the geometry. the only thing that needs to be done is scaling them to zero height (Y).
What you then have is the flat geometry which needs to be smoothly traversed through a certain path.
