HI

 

Need some help, how to make this tube with the loft command, it need to be round all along

and not flatting is out

 

Regards

Henrik

Henrik,

If you do searches on Youtube you will see plenty of tutorials on how to create these types of features.

Basically if you are doing a straight feature that has change between the base and the top then you need to use the loft feature.

If you have to create a snake type feature that may change shape along the curved path then you need to create a swepted feature.

 

I hope this helps you and good luck.

Shouldn't that be a Sweep rather than a Loft?
