Houdini 20.5 Shelf tools

Taper shelf tool

Scales the geometry along its length.

Using Taper

  1. Select the points to taper.

  2. Click the Taper tool on the Deform tab.

  3. Choose a Primary Axis and Secondary Axis in the drop-down menus on the parameter editor.

  4. Use the Strength and Rolloff parameters to control the amount of tapering.

You can change the Operation of the deformation in the drop-down menu on the operation controls toolbar or the parameter editor, since twist, bend, taper, linear taper, and squash and stretch all put down the same node.

For specific parameter node help see the Taper help.
