Here I have two views of my structure that I'm trying to LOFT/Extrude,
but with the guides I've drawn.
To LOFT the circles together (or extrude them) with the polyline as a guide,
and I assume the effect of the guide would be on all sides (ie 360 degrees around the circle would exhibit the same guide effect)
For some reason I can LOFT, but I can't use the POLYLINE as a guide, like it says "it's invalid"
I'm trying to make the shape of a cartoon POO (crap)...
For some reason the pictures I've posted didn't show up.
Please visit this page for the images
So far I appreaciate your help guys.
Yes Revolve/Sweep would do the trick in my case,
but it wouldn't if I wanna vary the shape in the RADIAL direction.
Thus I'd still like to have a guide/path in the radial direction.
However, AutoCAD has some limitations regarding the path/guide being used for LOFT.
And I am using 3D POLYLINE
Hoping to see some more comments!
umm ... try to attach a dwg .. it will help alot ..
the common problems i've faced with loft are not that much ..
- guiding curve doesn't touch cross section ..
- guiding curve contains more than a single segment between two cross sections ..
- and sometimes for sure Autocad itself is not in the mood to model your object !! (u might need to use some cuddling then )
