Wireframe Edges into Cylinders

Post by PrestonM » Sat Aug 03, 2013 10:37 pm

I am currently working on a project involving a lattice like support structure that I roughed out using edges and vertices only. Is there any way to turn a wireframe edge into a cylinder of my specifications? A similar tool exists in Google Sketchup, the Follow Me tool, but SU isn't sophisticated enough for this project.

An alternative would be adding the cylinders manually and scaling them to size, but I am curious if there is any way to make a cylinder longer after you have already rotated it? Scaling on any one axis would skew the profile of the cylinders, which I don't want.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
