Could we talk over the phone? I am so frustrated. Now nothing is working as in the demo. I was having trouble with scaling the handle so I went back several steps to start over. Now all I can do is bridge the tines and extrude them back. When I try to scale the area behind the tines, (2:18), it scales all of the tines instead of just the edge/transition area.
The reason I backed up was that when I thickened the plane to make a solid, I did not get soft edges as Brian’s demo shows. I also can no longer recreate the dishing step, (4:55). It now bends the entire fork rather than just rotating the selected points.
Below is a picture of the first fork I created from the side view. You’ll notice that the ends are quite square. This was done using the SubD surface command and then offset solid just as Brian indicates around 3:55. You’ll notice that there are no soft edges and neither end comes to a point or radius as Brian’s model seems to.
When I try to scale the handle to thicken it, I get the following…
