Have a look at the curves below. Each circle is actually an ellipse. What is the best tool to skin this bunch of curves?
I can do it if I split the ellipses on either the horizontal or vertical plane, then use the “Curve Network” command on both top/bottom (or left/right, depending on how I settled on splitting the ellipses), then joining the half “shells” (for lack of a better term). I can then of course Cap Planar Holes to seal off the flat ends.
But, is there a simpler way to skin these curves, or a better tool/command to use, without needing to split the ellipses, yet still maintaining a high level of fidelity to the curve locations?
I should also mention it cannot be a revolved profile (I don’t think it can, anyway), as the horizontal curves are sloping downward in their positions (the ellipses are not all vertically centered).
Thanks for any recommendations.
