I think a great modelling plug that could be developed would be a spline extrude type tool. A tool that would extrude polygons but have the extrusion follow the path of a spline, like the sketch extrude tool in Modo, if any of you are familiar with modo. You simply click on your polygon. C4d would then lock itself to the center of the polygon selection. You then draw out your spline from the locked center, and C4d extrudes the polys along the spline as you draw it out. Maybe, add in parameters for scaling and twisting down the path of the spline, paramaters for what kind of spline to be used i.e free hand, bezier, akima, ect. In fact it could basically be just the current matrix extrude tool but with a "follow spline path" function built into it.
I don't know if something like this would be too difficult, but I think it would be a great and useful tool for the c4d community. (hint, hint for anyone looking to take up a project in their spare time)

This plugin will be included in the next version of DPIT Nature Spirit (www.dpit2.de)

Awesome news. couple of questions. Where you planning on including a tool like this already or did you happen to see my suggestion and like it? (It'd be nice to know that I contributed to the C4d community...he he). Also, is there any chance of releasing the tool by itself independant of dpit for people that don't need the whole package?

:) No, it was planned way before (the tool is almost finished too, just need to add N-Gon support). I am not sure yet if it will be released seperately from the package.
If it will, it will appear on www.katachi.de (my website for all other plugins I write). If you want to stay tuned, you could subscribe to my newsletter at dpit2.de
Btw. You contribute by posting inquiries like this already. This shows us (plugin developers) that certain things are wanted by the user which is the best contribution you can make. :)
