The Extrude Edges by Lathe and the Extrude Edges by Vector created by TIG on SketchUcation.com is the next set of plugins from the extruding plugins set. These plugins allow you to revolve (with the Lathe) and a free form follow me (with the Vector).
The extrude edges by lathe is useful to create circular revolutions of an object or curve. It works by first selecting the face and then selecting the center point and then the axis of rotation. After these are selected it creates the 3D object. The downfall of this plugin is that you have to predetermine the center point, you cannot really type it in as the plugin is working. The other plugin Extrude Edges by Vector is basically a free form follow-me tool but only works with faces or edges that are NOT grouped or components. So if your edge needs to change directions the plugin will not rotate the edge. It will just take the same faced direction but kind of shift it over in another direction without rotation.
Overall, the Extrude Edges by Lathe and the Extrude Edges by Vector created by TIG on SketchUcation.com created by TIG can be useful plugins but are not essential. At the time of this review this plugin is free and is available at SketchUcation.com. You will need to download the entire Extrude tools set. I give this plugin 3 out 5 stars.
