i'm not sure, perhaps there is a possibility, but nevertheless i think its
worth to be discussed:
i often searched a function that "inflate" paths an curves, but not only
with a circle as profile but also with any shape(curve) you want. So for
example you have a bezier curve or a mesh in s-form. now you make an square
make it child of the s-curve/s-mesh and this function creates an s-shaped
mesh with a square-profile.
What do you think of this idea? I often missed this function, eg. if you
want to make a handle of a cup, i know, that there might be other ways of
modelling a handle, but this way is very easy.
