How do I shape this


How do I model the remaining of this?
I tried sweep 2 with one cross section in the middle but it does not work becasue I guess its shrinking towards the ends.

Hello - please post the curves and surfaces you have so far.

Hi Diana - I think I’d make it something like this:

Where the three input curves are all copies of one of them, edited, and then Loft with History - you can then fine tune the shapes by point editing the curves.


Hi Pascal,
Yes that exactly what I wanted. What do you mean with loft with history?

Hi Diana - turn on Record History

before completing the Loft command. This will link the curves to the surfaces and you can edit the surfaces by editing the curves - try it on my file, turn on the control points for the red curves and move them around. BTW, Loft uses the ‘Straight sections’ style here.

Thank you so much, Pascal!

Hi does anyone know how I could shape this?
I have already drawn the lines but not quite sure what to do next

Hi Diana - see the attached file - I made the blue curve, copied it twice vertically (red) then made a Loft through the curves with History. You can turn on the curve points to edit the lofted shape.

Is that it, more or less?

aha I see now I get it, thank you! :+1:

Hi Pascal,

If I where to continue the red lines and the the blue one to continoue the geometry how do I just continue drawing the polyline and then join each one to each color and loft it?

If this is not a way to do it can I somehow join 2 different shapes to become one?

Hi Diana - what happens if you use ContinueCurve on these?


Hi Pascal,
I tried this and the curves do continue but when half is already lofted and you want to loft the other half it does not work it just turns into a weird surface.
I think the most ideal would be that I could connect 2 of those shapes but not sure how to make it seamless because that means the surface breaks in between
