Profile builder sometimes skips lines when building along path

    Hi Chris,

    The crazy spike issue might be due to really tiny edges that you didn't release were there.

    I too have seen this operation sometimes fail to extrude along some edges.  I'm not sure why.  I'll have to look deeper into it.

    Thank you for the report.

    You should run the 'cleanup' plugin by ThomThom to repair all edges or you can analyze where there might be edge problems with 'EdgeTools" also from ThomThom.

    @Dale Martens - Thanks! Please let me know if you find a way to resolve the extrusion failure on some of the lines. Right now as a workaround, I just select some of the lines missing the extrusion and the lines connected to the missing extrusions and then re-run the build along path. This results in double extrusions in some areas which I know is a no-no in modeling, but it hasn't negatively affected my renders. I find that if I select all the lines that failed the first time it fails again. 

    @Mark Paschke - Thank you! The "CleanUp3" extension appears to have resolved the crazy spike issue on that particular model. I will use that going forward and see if that completely resolves the spike issue.
