Sweep a spline (pipe script)

Hello -

I'm in need of a script that can instantly sweep a spline with a circle. This is something like a script I found a long time ago called pipoficator. For some reason it won't work right with the new R18. Any chance I can get help with this? Thanks so much.

Coded in 5 min and I guess the code it's self explanatory but if you want more information feel free to ask 😉

import c4d
def main() :
    spline = op
    test_spline = spline.GetRealSpline()
    if not test_spline:
    sweep = c4d.BaseObject(c4d.Osweep)
    doc.AddUndo(c4d.UNDOTYPE_NEW, sweep)
    doc.AddUndo(c4d.UNDOTYPE_HIERARCHY_PSR, spline)
    circle = c4d.BaseObject(c4d.Osplinecircle)
    circle[c4d.PRIM_CIRCLE_RADIUS] = 10 #change the radius of the circle here
    doc.AddUndo(c4d.UNDOTYPE_NEW, circle)
if __name__=='__main__':

I think, there's a small bug when adding the last undo step. There it probably should be circle instead of sweep.

Hi Greg,
I've not done much here. But, please, just Andreas is enough.
