    First, Thanks a lot for the video. I think I found something interesting may help someone. If you select the face from hit "F11" and select them by box (which means not select one by one using click). It will not work. The only way you can successfully extrude is doing the 100% same steps like Mike's video showing.

    Hope the little tip can help someone like me. LOL

    It's not working at all 🙁 the face can extrude but it won't extrude along the curve. It is Maya 2016. Can I know how to fix, Mike?

    I've done exactly what you have demonstrated in the video, but it will not extrude along the curve. I even checked in the options box to make sure it was set to extrude along the selected curve.

    I had to tie a complex knot with the curves manually and tried to extrude rope to follow that curve, sounds easy enough and a solid plan. However, some areas had SUPER dense divisions while others don't. I thought it was correlated to the curve points but after some deleting and trying again, its not? Then I had to manually delete 100 divisions for each of the 4 ropes thats twisting. The rope doesn't even follow the curve all the way to the end but just stop 70% of the way and forces me to extrude more to do it manually. This is super frustrating and I thought there had to be a better way, how did I mess up. After rewatching several different videos on how to make rope, i can't figure out why.

    Thanks so much for the tutorial – really concise and clear! I did run into an issue with mine though – the rope twists are more dense in the middle and they loosen at both ends. I've played around with all the sliders and I've repeated the exercise from scratch in case I missed something. Can't figure it out so I'll work with what I have for now. Thanks you again, your free tutorials for the love of teaching and sharing are beyond awesome. 🙂
