Long name (short name)TypeDefaultFlags
inputProfile (ipc) nurbsCurveNULLoutputinputconnectable
input profile curve
twist (twt) angle (double)0.0degoutputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Twist or Rotation along the extrusion path
taper (tp) double1.0outputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Taper or Scale along the extrusion path
taperCurve (c) compoundn/aarrayoutputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Curve control for taper along extrusion Using this curve, the taper along extrusion can be changed from a simple linear scaling to custom scaling along the extrusion path.
taperCurve_Position (cp) float0.0outputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Position of ramp value on normalized 0-1 scale
taperCurve_FloatValue (cfv) float0.0outputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Ramp value at the sibling position
taperCurve_Interp (ci) enum0outputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
Ramp Interpolation controls the way the intermediate values are calculated. The values are:
    None: No interpolation is done; the different colors just show up as different bands in the final texture.

    Linear: The values are interpolated linearly in RGB color space.

    Smooth: The values are interpolated along a bell curve, so that each color on the ramp dominates the region around it, then blends quickly to the next color.

    Spline: The values are interpolated with a spline curve, taking neighboring indices into account for greater smoothness.

divisions (dv) integer1outputinputconnectablestorablekeyable
The number of subdivisions in the bridging faces (resulting in (divisions+1) row of faces).
startVert1 (sv1) integer-1outputinputconnectablestorable
The start vertex from the first set of edges
startVert2 (sv2) integer-1outputinputconnectablestorable
The start vertex from the second set of edges
bridgeOffset (bo) integer0outputinputconnectablestorable
Add offset to which vertices are connected.
curveType (ctp) enum0outputinputconnectablestorable
Format: 0 - Linear, 1 - Blend, 2 - Curve
smoothingAngle (sma) angle (double)30.0degoutputinputconnectablestorable
Angle below which new edges will be smoothed
